Cambridge Checkpoint, IGCSE and the external Italian State exams, provide two challenging qualifications which allow our students to enter high schools worldwide.

Castelli International School has a rolling admissions policy which means that applications will be accepted throughout the school year and summer.
Where a visit to the school is possible, students applying for Grades 1, 2 and 3 have an informal interview. Students from 4th grade on, take a written test along with the interview. If that is not possible the student must fill out the application forms on the website and return to the school.
Visit the school’s website to find application forms and make enquiries for more information.
