Admissions Criteria

QSI Virtual School has an inclusive admissions policy and seeks to welcome motivated and independent secondary students from diverse backgrounds from all over the globe. Although students may attend from any country, it is the responsibility of the student's parents or legal guardian to determine if they are eligible for an online international education based on their country's local laws and regulations.  

QSI Virtual School will carefully review and consider all admissions applications. QVS also recognizes that a full-time online educational program may not be suitable for all students and will make admissions decisions in the best interest of the student. In this regard, QSI Virtual School seeks to admit students best suited to excel in online learning.
