Student at the front of Ricks Building


Congratulations on your choice to explore enrollment at Ricks Institute, one of Liberia’s finest schools. An important goal for admission at Ricks is to make the admission process extremely individualized and relaxed for each student.

Entry grade levels to Ricks are kindergarten to 10th grades. Admissions into these grades are limited and depends on enrollment. Applications are accepted June - August for entry in the following school year, however, inquiries are welcome throughout the year. We occasionally accept students during the second semester only if we have spaces.

Because of limited space, not all who qualify can be accepted. Those students who demonstrate a potential for the greatest success with the Ricks program are admitted.

The admission process at Ricks is designed with the student in mind. Each step and deadline involved in the application process for both day and boarding students are outlined throughout this section of the website. Please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can meet your specific needs for enrollment.

Ricks Institute reserves the right to withdraw its acceptance of an incoming student’s applicant for enrollment, for any reason or no reason at all, prior to the first school day of the academic year.
