Student applications are now being accepted at HCAS. Since the applications are processed in the order that they are received, parents are encouraged to submit their applications early. Admissions decisions will be made in a timely manner based upon the assessment results, returning student re-enrollment, and space availability. Members of the Committee for admission are led by the Head of School, and the applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. In considering the admission criteria, we look for the ‘best fit’ model. Majority of our students are Taiwanese dual citizens and smaller but thriving international community.
