Prep School Admissions
Thank you for your interest in the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) Preparatory School. We invite you and your family to experience what it is like to be a part of the RUSVM Preparatory School community.
The required forms for applying to RUSVM Prep School can be found in the Admissions Policy section. Contact Michelle Phillip-Mitchel for specifics on the current tuition rate by emailing [email protected] or calling 869-465-4161 x 4011133.
Please note that the RUSVM Preparatory School operates on the same calendar as the University, making it easier for parents to manage their time. There is no deadline to submit an application. It is in the best interest of the student, however, to complete an application as early as possible because some grade levels tend to fill up quickly. Special arrangements can be made for students who are beyond grade 8.
Thank you again for your interest in the RUSVM Preparatory School. We hope to see you and your family on our beautiful campus soon!
Admissions Policy, Procedures, and Entrance Requirements
Potential parents may meet with the superintendent to tour the school and have their questions answered if they are on island. The Parent-Student Handbook is online or it can be emailed upon request. The admissions process is complete only when the application and all the required documents have been provided to the school.
The following must be received for each applicant:
- Completed application
- Copy of the first two pages of the passport
- Copy of birth certificate
- Official school records from previous years, if applicable
- Completed medical form
- Copy of Immunization record
- Student release form
- A signed statement from parents and students that they have read the Parent-Student Handbook
- Map of directions to the family home in St. Kitts
Enrollment is limited at the prep school and is based on class size, space, and personnel. Priority will be given to students as described below.
All children and legal dependents of RUSVM faculty and students of one-parent families will be accepted.
Children and legal dependents of RUSVM faculty and students in two-parent families where one parent is not a student or faculty member at Ross.
Children and legal dependents of RUSVM staff members.
Other children as determined by the superintendent.
KINDERGARTEN THROUGH GRADE 8 AND ONLINE HS STUDENTS
All children and legal dependents of RUSVM faculty and students will be accepted, provided the child does not have challenges that cannot be met at the prep school. The superintendent will make the final decision.
Children and legal dependents of RUSVM staff members of Ross University.
Children not connected to Ross University who can satisfactorily demonstrate the need for a US-style curriculum. Documentation could include records showing the student has come from a US school and/or information stating they will be transferring to a school with a US curriculum. Acceptance is totally at the discretion of the superintendent and will be dependent upon space, teachers, grade level, welfare of the student population, and any other factors deemed appropriate. Siblings of currently enrolled students will be considered first within this category. New applicants transferring from a recognized international school will have the next priority within this category.
