Entry Points

We offer a Four-Year Programme, comprising two years of iGCSE taught alongside our own assessed courses, followed by the Two-Year A Level programme, as in the United Kingdom.

  • Year 10most students will join us in Year 10 for the Four-Year Programme.

Students may also join the school in:

  • Year 12 – for the Two-Year Programme, involving only A Levels;
  • Foundation Year – for a preparatory programme before they start the regular Akademeia High School curriculum.

The stages of recruitment

During the various stages of recruitment, we aim to learn as much as possible about the skills and aptitudes of the student.

Parents meet can individually with an admissions officer to learn more about how the school functions, the requirements of the academic programme, the school’s teaching philosophy and the later stages of the recruiting process. The decision about whether to take part in those later stages is made after this meeting with the admissions tutor. However, this meeting is not mandatory.

 

Stage 1

The recruitment process lasts for two days and is conducted over the course of a single weekend. Our recruitment (assessment) weekends include:

  1. University lectures in English supplemented with tests to check the students’ abilities to learn and understand new content, analytical thinking, ability to draw conclusions, and ability to compare data.
  2. English Language competence testing. 
  3. Individual meetings with subject teachers: we check not only a student’s knowledge but also, more importantly, their predisposition.
  4. Group tasks, in which we check soft skills and social abilities.
  5. Mathematics test.

This assessment process was created with the aim of uncovering the academic knowledge and talents held by each individual student. In doing so, we can better understand how these may be enriched, developed, and employed in propelling students along the educational pathway to which they are most suited.

This detailed, analytical entrance process was designed by us, based on our personal knowledge of and experience within the Oxbridge interview system, as well as A Level requirements and other assessment methods.

All meetings are conducted exclusively by our own teachers. We assess not only each student’s current knowledge, but also evaluate their potential across the spectrum of academic, business and artistic fields. This enables us to see each student in three dimensions, educationally speaking.

The cost of participation in the recruitment weekend is 2 000 PLN.

Upcoming recruitment weekends:

  • 25 – 26 January 2020 – Year 12
  • 29 February – 1 March 2020 – Year 10
  • 21 – 22 March 2020 – Foundation Year and Year 10

 

Stage 2

At the end of the process, the parents and the student receive a tailored report to be discussed at an individual meeting. The report outlines recommendations for the student’s educational path, based upon the student’s optimal learning style, needs and predispositions, as well as guidance for further development.

 

Stage 3

Decisions regarding admissions are based on the final report.
