Students applying from Mainland China
In order to better facilitate the interview process for students living and studying in Mainland China, Cheshire Academy has partnered with Vericant. Any student from Mainland China who would like to visit and apply to Cheshire Academy is required to first complete an interview and short writing exercise with Vericant, who will post interviews for our admission team to review. Once the office of admissions has reviewed the Vericant interview videos, we will notify a group of students who will be invited to interview with a Cheshire Academy Admission Officer. The Vericant interview will give you an excellent opportunity to showcase your personality and skills to our admissions team and is a required component of the completed application for all applicants from China. To learn more about Vericant and to schedule an interview, please visit Vericant's Website.
