Application Process for Prekindergarten
Welcome to the American School of Guatemala’s Prekindergarten application and admissions information center. We have streamlined our applications and admissions process for the Early Childhood Section to ensure that we balance the needs of young children and their families with the needs of the school. You are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school. However, we recommend that you wait until your child is three years old, so that you can better appreciate the special attention we give to our younger students.
We hope that you find this website helpful and easy to use. On it you will find an Application Calendar, and an outline of procedures for application, as well as the Application Form and Parent Questionnaire. These forms, plus a Letter of Solvency from your child’s current school, are mandatory in the application process. As well, we have included the Pre-School/School Recommendation Form, which is necessary ONLY AFTER a child have been selected to continue in to the screening phase of the application process. This Recommendation Form should be sent by the child’s school to CAG, in September before the screening in October. It should be noted that applying does not guarantee admissions.
Once an application has been made, it is the parent’s responsibility to remain in contact with the school and visit the website regularly for information updates. Parents should also contact the school immediately, if any information changes occur such as changes of phone numbers, emails, and/or addresses. If we cannot contact you, we will assume that you are no longer interested in CAG, and we will withdraw your child's name from our application process.
We thank you in advance for your interest in our school. We would also like to suggest that you visit the Early Childhood Section of our webpage, to find out more about our excellent program.
If, after reading all of this information, you should have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email. Thank you for your visit.
**Note: You may apply 1 year before the anticipated date of entry. This means that yearly, on May we will accept applications for the following school year. Each year, the specific dates will be indicated on the website. Check regularly for updates.
