The school accepts females up to 35 years old. The tuition lasts for 3 years 10 months. All pupils of the school are on full church provision: free education, accommodation in a local dorm and four meals a day. Students also get scholarships.
Ten girls graduated this institution this year. To be accepted, it is not enough to pass the Unified State Exams and other examinations are needed: a test of reading skills in the Church Slavonic language, conscious knowledge of prayers, and some more.
It is desirable to have a musical education. Some students attend music school before admission since one has to be able to play the piano well for exams.
