An interview with the school director is required, as is a drop-in day so that teachers may evaluate applicant. Assessments may be administered to properly determine the student’s grade level.  Entrance to grade level will be determined by the admissions team. Admission is rolling, however, preference may be given to siblings of students already enrolled with San Juan del Sur Day School and to families with a long-term commitment to San Juan del Sur.
