Admissions Decisions

Testing is not a required part of the admissions process for the Elementary School.

The admissions team, in consultation with the headmaster, will make all admissions decisions. Once a family has submitted the application form(s), paid the application fee, and completed a visit, a decision will be made within two weeks (shorter when possible). In order to secure a spot, families must pay the nonrefundable one-time Campus Enhancement Fee of Eur 4,000. Founding families—those enrolling for the inaugural 2020-2021 school year—will receive a 50% discount on this fee, which includes all subsequent children in the family who enroll.
