Admission Policy

Saramen Chuuk Academy seeks to provide a high school education for more talented young people, Catholic or non-Catholic. Hence, it screens admissions for acadamic ability through a yearly test. Those who have passed the acadamic test are screened for character and commitment.

Another letter requesting copies of student's records and transcript will be sent to the principal of the school. All three items (parents release form, teacher recommendation forms and transcripts) must be completed and send to the principal of Saramen Chuuk Academy before a set deadline.
