Admission to Paragon International School is based on whether a student’s educational needs can be met by the school and its programmes. Students can be enrolled in the school throughout the year but admission will also depend on spaces available within grades and classes. Admission for toddlers to the school’s kindergarten will be open twice a year. It is important to remember that the busiest enrolment period is in March for the next academic year which begins in August.

It is important that the application for enrolment in Paragon ISC is submitted in full with the supporting documents required by the school. Application forms can be obtained through the Paragon ISC website or by visiting one of the school’s three campuses.


These documents should include:

  • Two photos (4”6) for students; one photo (4”6) for each parent (required for pick-up card at KG and primary campuses)
  • A copy of a student’s passport; a copy of a student’s birth certificate; a copy of a parent’s passport or ID
  • Previous school records/reports for at least the two most recent years (in English for international students and both Khmer and English for the school’s bilingual programme)
  • Grade 6 or 9 National Exam completion certificate (bilingual programme); and a levere book if a student is in possession of one.
  • A health history of a student must also be provided with proof of immunisation.
  • A parental agreement and fee policy agreement must be signed and submitted with the student’s application form, which as stated above must be filled out in full when submitted.
  • A recommendation letter from a student’s previous school is also required. This letter can be emailed to Paragon ISC by the previous school or can be included with the potential student’s application.


Once an application for a student has been received it will be reviewed by the school. A placement test in English, mathematics and science (bilingual programme candidates take also a Khmer literature test) may then be arranged for the student.

An appointment for an interview will be arranged for a potential student and the interview will be conducted by an admission team including the principal and the admissions officer. Additional previous school records may be requested after the interview.


Once these procedures have taken place an acceptance or rejection letter will be sent to the student.
