International Applicants

We realize that families applying from abroad frequently need to apply off-cycle from our regular admissions season. If you are inquiring after the local November 21st application deadline, please contact our Admissions Office, to ascertain availability and next steps.

 

Please note: ISB is a full immersion program (French or Spanish) in the early years (Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten) and can accommodate native speakers, bilingual, and anglophone students. Because the program progresses into a bilingual model (French/English or Spanish/English), ISB require candidates for 2nd through 5th Grade to have academic fluency in French or Spanish in order to be considered for admission. French or Spanish-speaking students new to English can be accommodated at all grade levels.

  • Parents must fill out an admissions application and a $75 application fee (a link to the application will be provided after contact with admissions and in accordance with availability)

  • Student work samples for applicants to 1st Grade and above must be submitted for the admissions file
  • Admissions will schedule a Skype interview with parents and student (depending on age)
