The duration of this sit-in will be the full length of the school day at that grade level applied for. The Headmaster has full discretion to waive the sit-in or to recommend a sit-in at an alternative grade level, if he deems it will be in the student's best interest.

STEP 4: Interview with Parents

Following Steps 2 and 3, the Admissions Office may arrange for an interview with the parent(s) and a panel comprising the CISM Headmaster (or nominee) and at least one Trustee of the Board.

STEP 5: Offer of a Place and Acceptance

After the completion of Steps 2, 3, and 4, the Admissions Committee will carefully review the student's application and make a decision on whether to offer or refuse acceptance into the school. Please note that should the number of applications for a grade level exceed the number of spaces available for the term, the Admissions Committee will deliberate on which students will be offered acceptance.

All decisions on enrollment and grade level placement are final. CISM reserves the right to deny a student's acceptance into the school if any information provided in the admissions forms/documentation prove to be false, misleading, deceptive, incorrect, and/or incomplete.
