When do we get admission forms for Nursery?
The forms will be available in the school during distribution dates mentioned in the schedule of the Admission procedure. If the dates are not yet available, you may keep on checking our website regularly.
My child is born in days later than the deadline. Can I still admit my child?
The cut off dates are Sept 30th each year. The cut-off only applies to admissions in preschool as well as class 1. To enter grade 2, your child has to pass grade 1, for grade 3, he has to have passed grade 2, and so on up to class 12. Kindly refer to the Maharashtra Govt. GR copy which is available on our website. If your child is underage as per the GR, try next year.
We are seeking admission (eg. class 5) in your school. What is the process?
In higher classes we offer admissions only against vacant seats. Send email with details of your child for requesting admission, If there is a vacancy created, we will get back to you. Usually we start the process of getting confirmation for continuation of existing students in March/ April. You can contact us during end of March/April.
Is mid-term admission possible?
Yes, if there is vacancy available, we give the mid-term admission.
Can we secure next year’s admission for higher classes right now / in advance?
No. As we said admissions happen only against vacant seats and that we come to know around end of March/April. So this is not possible
Can we come and visit the school before completing admission procedure?
For nursery admissions, we provide a guided tour of school campus and explain the philosophy of the school. Once you fill in online application form, we send you an e mail informing the time slot of this tour. If you miss the campus tour, you may visit the school on the next Saturday between 9 am to 12 noon. (Please note that this will not be a guided tour.)
When does the school conduct admission tests?
Admission tests are not conducted but level readiness check after prior appointment for other than Nursery. If you are interested in securing a slot, please contact the school office. No level readiness check for admissions in Nursery.

For parents coming from outside Maharashtra
My child’s 7 year growth was in US and I am a bit concerned about his getting adjusted to Marathi communication. We speak Marathi at home so this should not be a major problem but reading /writing Marathi are new things to my child. Does he need to take special classes?
Marathi starts in Std 1 where it is mostly oral and visual learning upto class 2. We teach simple letters in Std 3 and joint (jodakshar) in Std 4. Children start reading and writing small sentences by the end of 3rd Std. Hindi gets introduced from Std. 5 onwards. Anybody joining in 3rd would not need to take special classes. Communication in the school is in English. We have quite a few students who are either US citizens or have stayed there for 3-4 years and they have adjusted to the school very well and are extremely happy.
My child is born and brought up in a foreign country. We now want to move back, and want to admit my child into the 5th/6th standard. I am a bit concerned about him adjusting to the education system in India. Can you help us with this issue?
For your kids, just like the change in weather, food, water, air, neighbours, people, and housing, school is also going to be different. All you need to have is patience for the transition. We are patient with kids. As you probably know, the schooling system here is quite different from the schooling system elsewhere. As for subjects, Maths and Science will be of a higher level. History, Geography will be obviously very different. Languages will be different. English Grammar is quite extensive here, so be in touch with us to get a list of topics your child can start going through. For Marathi, the child will take some time to cope up, and gradually by the 7th or the 8th grade will be at par with the other children. Hindi starts in 5th and has the same Devnagari script as Marathi – so will not be much problem. We don’t give children a lot of homework on weekdays, so the kids can come home and relax and spend time with their family. We try to make the transition easy on the kids. Our water is very clean. The food served isn’t oily and spicy. We are patient with the kids. Our experience is that the kids take a few weeks to a few months to adjust. In this period, it is very important for the parents to keep their patience and be very encouraging.
