Admissions Info

Thank you for your interest in SVS, a fully accredited British curriculum school. 

ISG Admissions Policy
It is the policy of the Board to accommodate students of many nationalities. English proficiency is not an entrance requirement at Sara Village School.
 
ISG RESERVES THE RIGHT TO EVALUATE EACH APPLICANT TO DETERMINE ACCEPTANCE AND APPROPRIATE PLACEMENT. PREVIOUS SCHOOL RECORDS WILL BE REVIEWED AND CONSIDERED IN DETERMINING GRADE PLACEMENT.
 
Sara Village School will not accept students who, because of severe cognitive or physical disabilities require special education classes or services. If upon receipt of school records or present observations and testing, it becomes apparent that a student requires special services that Sara Village School does not provide, parents will be notified. The school reserves the right to exclude a child for failure to satisfy entrance requirements of this policy.
 
New enrollees without previous school records will be placed according to chronological age and/or testing. The school reserves the right to reassign students upon receipt of previous school records and/or test results. The principal or designee, shall make the decisions pertaining to grade placement.

SVS continues accepting applications through the year. Assessments and review will be based on seat availability only.
 
Please Note:
Saudi law requires that all new students (except American and British citizens) apply for a Ministry of Education approval.  If the applicant is in grade 2 or above, the applicant's current report card must be attested by the Saudi Embassy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the country from which the report card is being issued. This may be carried with you, as it will only be needed upon arrival in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi law also requires Saudi nationals (no matter what age) to apply for Ministry of Education approval directly through the MOE. Approval documents must be submitted before an assessment is scheduled.
