All applicants to CLIP are interviewed and assessed by the respective Director of the relevant School or their representative. A profile of each candidate is developed, which includes quantitative and qualitative data. The former involves testing results and school records, such as grade and progress reports, exam and test results, psychological and/or psychiatric assessments, etc. Qualitative data includes student interviews, home assessments and personal observations made by staff. The above notwithstanding, CLIP is a non-selective school.
