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 December 1st 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 PK-3, PK-4, 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 requires 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.

  • 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)
