English is the medium of instruction in Everest Academy Manila. All applicants must take the entrance test administered in English to help the school evaluate their level of English proficiency. This will also ensure that, once accepted, the student will not encounter any difficulty in reading and writing in English.

4. Do you accept non-Catholics?

Yes, we do. While we are a Catholic international school, students do not have to be Catholic to attend. Our religious affiliation helps us in achieving our school mission of fostering development in knowledge and virtues in all our students, not just those who are Catholic.

5. Do you accept children with special needs?

Everest believes every child has a right to learning but as mainstream school, we do not have the resources to provide for children with special needs. Prospective students are assesses to determine if Everest Academy can support them to fulfill their potential.

6. Do you accept mid-year enrollments for transferring students?

We do accept transfers up to the beginning of the 2nd semester.


For cases where a transferring student comes from a different academic calendar, please contact admissions@everestmanila.edu.ph to discuss your child's specific scenario.
