Admissions

Registration for the academic year 2024-2025 has unfortunately now closed.

Registration for Year 1 (Preparatory)

Siblings of children already at RICE receive priority. In May, we invite continuing families and new families interested in having their child join Year 1, to come for the Entrance Assessment and interview. The Entrance Assessment covers English, Math and Amharic. A child must pass this.

Registration for Year 2 – Year 13 (Grade 1 – Grade 12)

In May, current families are asked to make a commitment for the following school year. This helps us to see what spaces we will have available in other Years. Depending on where spaces are available we begin to invite new families to bring their child for an Entrance Assessment and interview. The Entrance Assessment covers English, Math and Amharic. A child must pass this and the interview.
