|Step 1 : Contact|
|Step 2 : Visit|
You are strongly advised to accompany the child on a school visit, although this is not mandatory. This will enable you to appreciate the various aspects of our organisation and discover more about school life.
|Step 3 : Documents|
- Complete the online Admission Form.
- Provide a short reference letter in English or French from the School Principal, Class Teacher or Head of Academics at the child’s current school.
|Step 4 : Evaluation Test|
An entry evaluation test of English and Mathematics must be completed for children applying for Year 3 to Year 9.
The Admissions Office will organise testing at school or the test may be sent to the current school or home. Tests conducted outside La Garenne must comply with certain requirements as specified by the office.
|Step 5 : Decision|
The Admissions Committee will consider the completed file and make a decision. The meeting is held once a week and the family will be advised of the outcome on that same day.
|Step 6 : Enrollment Fees|
Once the family has been informed of a successful application, an invoice of CHF 2'000.- to cover enrolment fees is sent with the admission letter. A single payment of this amount in full is due on receipt of the invoice. This payment guarantees the child’s place and is non-refundable.

|Step 7 : Visa & Swiss Student Permit|
Boarding students with European nationalities do not require a Student Visa to enter Switzerland
Boarding students holding a European passport or any citizenship not requiring a Student Visa to enter Switzerland (e.g. Japanese) need only to apply for a Swiss Student permit. The school will gather the necessary documents at the start of the school year, or when the child is physically present at school. Parents will not need to take any action, as it is the responsibility of the school to declare these students to the local authorities. An amount of CHF 2'000.- will be included on the first invoice, covering the request for the Swiss Student Permit.
|Step 8 : School Fees Payment|
Parents of all new students will receive a first invoice for two thirds of the school fees that must be settled by July 1st. The second invoice representing the balance is to be paid by December 1st.
