The best way to discover what school at CNG could be like is to visit us. We would love to meet you and your family if you are planning a trip to Bogota, or schedule a virtual meeting if you are unable to visit us in person. Please contact us at your convenience to schedule a meeting with someone from the Admissions team and a tour with one of our Student Ambassadors.

2. Provide Additional Information Regarding your Child’s Special Needs: As part of Colegio Nueva Granada’s (CNG) mission to support and ensure demographic diversity within our community, CNG takes special interest in American, international, and “Global Nomad” families who are positively involved in their child's educational process. International families considering a move to Colombia may apply at any point during the school year; CNG has rolling admissions for families coming from abroad. CNG also provides special consideration and attention to serving students who have specialized learning needs depending on our school’s ability to provide appropriate services that meet the program requirements and best interests of the child. 

If you have a child who requires or may require Learning Center support at CNG (Special Education Services), please send to the Admissions Office a recent psycho-educational evaluation (valid within three years of your application date to CNG), an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) if applicable, and recent reports from educational specialists and/or therapists working with your child. Our Learning Center and Admissions Team will confirm if we have the available services to support your child. All information should be scanned and sent to admissions@cng.edu. Upon confirmation of space availability and the range of necessary services required for your child’s educational needs, you may continue with the regular application process.

For families considering the prospect of serving with the U.S. Mission in Colombia, CNG will need to receive the above information in advance to determine whether or not the school can provide the necessary services for your child(ren) with special needs. Once the Admissions Office has confirmed the availability of services, you will be informed in writing, and this verification can be used in order to bid to post. Please make an important note that confirmation of available services does not signify guaranteed admission given that some families request confirmation of services up to two years in advance. Therefore, we would like to emphasize that final admission will depend on space availability both at the grade level and in our Learning Center as well as the student’s continued ability to meet our entry requirements. Additionally, please note that the admissions process has several steps that will need to be completed, including interviews and testing, once you formally decide to apply. As a result, we strongly encourage you to contact the CNG Admissions Office for more information as soon as you know that your family will be coming to Bogota. 

Families of the U.S. Mission to Colombia must also refer to the “Educational Payment Policy and Procedures” written guidelines (available from the CLO's Office or RMOP) to ensure approval of your child's special needs allowance from the Approving Officer. Once approved, you will receive a cable confirming this special needs allowance. Please note that CNG must receive a copy of this cable confirming approval of the special needs allowance before your child can begin attending class and receiving services. 

As a final note, although CNG has a strong commitment to serving students with a wide range of exceptionalities supported within our inclusionary model of special education, our Board policy restricts and highly limits the acceptance of children with any type of behavioral or conduct issues.

Please make an important note that confirmation of available services does not signify guaranteed admission given that some families request confirmation of services up to two years in advance. Therefore, we would like to emphasize that final admission will depend on space availability both at the grade level and in our Learning Center as well as the student’s continued ability to meet our entry requirements. Additionally, please note that the admissions process has several steps that will need to be completed, including interviews and testing, once you formally decide to apply. As a result, we strongly encourage you to contact the CNG Admissions Office for more information as soon as you know that your family will be coming to Bogota. 

Families of the U.S. Mission to Colombia must also refer to the “Educational Payment Policy and Procedures” written guidelines (available from the CLO's Office or RMOP) to ensure approval of your child's special needs allowance from the Approving Officer. Once approved, you will receive a cable confirming this special needs allowance. Please note that CNG must receive a copy of this cable confirming approval of the special needs allowance before your child can begin attending class and receiving services. 

As a final note, although CNG has a strong commitment to serving students with a wide range of exceptionalities supported within our inclusionary model of special education, our Board policy restricts and highly limits the acceptance of children with any type of behavioral or conduct issues.
