Admission Prerequisites

Thank you for your consideration. The curriculum at SYAS caters to students with a view to thrive during their time with us, and beyond. Needfully, the school has outlined a framework to ascertain whether applicants have the capacity to benefit from all that SYAS has to offer. These conditions are not only necessary but essential.

Applications for admission are accepted only for Primary 1 – Primary 5 and Preparatory Secondary 1 Foundation – Secondary 3. SYAS does not admit new students into Primary 6 and Secondary 4.

Enrolment is never automatic. All new students have to meet the Course Entry Requirements (Admission and Age Requirements). To qualify for admission, students have to meet conduct requirements and selection will be based on 1) Placement test results, 2) Vacancy, and 3) Interview.

Students are strongly encouraged to join SYAS in the first half of that Academic Year. The school allows eligible students to join the school midyear only on a case-by-case basis. It is the responsibility of the students to catch up with the lessons in time for the year end promotional examinations.

Once eligible, applications are accepted only for Primary 1 – Primary 5 and Preparatory Secondary 1 Foundation – Secondary 3. SYAS does not admit new students into Primary 6 and Secondary 4.
