The school and the kindergarten accept new students to all grades.
The general application period starts in January for the next academic year, which begins in August. Students can also apply at other times and it’s possible to enroll during the semester provided that there is vacancy.
Students are admitted based on an application and an interview. The purpose of the application process is to determine if the school can provide for the student’s educational needs according to the Finnish educational law. In addition, the application gives guardians the opportunity to consider and accept the core values of the school and the kindergarten.
As a part of the admissions process, Espoo Christian School usually contacts the student’s previous school,with permission from guardians, in order to gain necessary information to ease the new student’s transition..
It is possible for a child to join the kindergarten without much knowledge of the Finnish language. On the other hand, the school requires students to possess adequate Finnish language skills. If a student doesn’t know Finnish, it is possible to attend a preparatory class in one of the Espoo city schools for one academic year. The goal for these studies is to acquire adequate language skills in order to follow teaching in Finnish. After a year the student can transfer to the Espoo Christian school. Espoo Christian school provides Finnish as a second language studies to support the student’s learning of Finnish.
The board of the school and kindergarten admit students based on the previously described admissions process.
To start the application process, please fill in the application form and send it to the school.
