Admission policy for Foundation Year/Year 11/Vg1

Skagerak International School aims to attract students who wish to be actively involved in a caring and committed internationally-minded and bilingual community.

Applicants shall have the right to start a high school education in accordance with § 3-1 of the Independent School Law (Friskolelova), so called “ungdomsrett”.

Applicants must include proof of completed schooling (grunnskolen) or its equivalent to qualify to enter Foundation year/Year 11/Vg1.

For the start of school in August, the application deadline is March 1. Applications received after this deadline will be processed in the order they are received for the remaining available places.

Due to limited number of students that can be accepted, the following priority order has been set:

  • Current Skagerak students applying for the following year
  • Children of members of staff
  • Students with previous international or English language schooling
  • Siblings of current Skagerak students
  • Other applicants

All decisions regarding admission to the school are subject to and in accordance with the Independent School Act (Friskolelova) §3-1 and the Public Administration Act (Forvaltningsloven) §2, with the right of appeal to the County Governor (Fylkesmannen).
