Prospective students will still need to submit an application form; it can be found online at the school's website. Students will also need to submit official high school transcripts as part of the application. While campus visits are not required of applicants, they are suggested, so that applicants can see if the school would be a good fit for them. If you have any questions about the school or its admissions process, be sure to check out Sinte Gleska's website, or contact a member of the admissions office.
