We are thinking of moving to AC. I have done a search through the forums with no luck on finding anything about Education on AC - especially for the Elementary school age. What are the opinions of the schools?
Good morning - I was just too tired to turn on the computer last night. CajunQueen I have had 3 children attend the island academy. The school office is currently open and I would recommend that you call to see if there are any spaces available in first grade. The public/church assisted schools are always full to capacity - and many kids are turned away. Your best bets will be to apply to the Island Academy, Ambergris Caye Elementary School or La Isla Bonita - I can get numbers for you.
School is set to start on August 24 for Island Academy. I think the other schools are starting in September.
It would be best if you call the schools to get the most accurate info. Yes the schools I have mentioned are private schools and the tuition rates range from $200 - 600 per month depending on school, grade and whether or not books are included. There are registration fees too. My son is in the year before grade 1.
I don't know what documentation you will need, but you can get a student visa for your child once he is enrolled.
