Every September, teenagers from across Canada and beyond choose to step outside of their comfort zones at NJC. While studying Grade 12 curriculum and AP from their new home in Switzerland, they explore a dozen countries, mature rapidly, and make the best friends of their lives. Academic preparedness and international exposure lead to acceptances from the finest universities. New independence enables them to understand who they are and realize how their passions and talents will one day contribute on a global scale.
Learn about applying for the 2024-25 Academic Year
Once they have secured the June 2023 report card, students are eligible to apply for the Early Application deadline for the 2024-25 academic year. This application deadline is July 7, 2023, and is open to applications for Grade 12 and for a gap year. Successful early applicants benefit from the knowledge that they have secured a space at NJC well in advance of the traditional application period, which is helpful in planning the academic path going forward. Early admission is designed to provide families with maximum flexibility while supporting the school in its planning. Families of candidates who are accepted as part of the Early Application option will receive an additional 1,000 Swiss Franc (CHF) tuition incentive upon enrolment.
To ensure the academic preparedness of successful early applicants, the early offer of admission is conditional upon the submission of a positive report card and an admission interview in the Fall of 2023.
