The Application Process

In order to be enrolled at AISA, all prospective students must meet and comply with the criteria for admission. Prospective families are encouraged to schedule a school visit by contacting the Admissions Office. Most students are admitted at the beginning of the school year. However, due to the ebb and flow of the community, AISA has a rolling admission where we admit students all year round provided they meet all the criteria for admission and there is available class space.

All applications are to be submitted in PDF format to the Registrar via email at admission@aisabuja.com. Clicking here can download a copy of the following admissions forms:

Non-English Speaking Applicants

The school offers an English as an Additional Language (EAL) Program to students in Grades 1 – 8. EAL Students applying to grades 9 -12 are required to meet the grade level English Language requirements.

 

Students with special needs must submit any additional documentation such as a psychological evaluation, Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), and/or any other relevant documentation needed to support their application. It is the responsibility of the parents to disclose all documentation fully prior to an offer of admission being made so that the school administration can determine if the child’s needs can be met at AISA. Failure of any applicant to disclose fully in any instance may result in the offer of acceptance being rescinded. AISA reserves the right to deny admission to students whose special needs cannot be serviced by the school.

Age Policy

 

An age policy is essential in order to ensure that students who enter each grade are physically, mentally, socially and

emotionally prepared. The Age Policy is effective from the beginning of the school year for new students. Click here to view.
