HOW TO APPLY
The American International School in Egypt accepts applications for students in KG1 to Grade 12.
All applications made to AIS Egypt are considered on an individual basis and must be in good academic and behavior standing in their current school. Admission will only be finalized after all relevant paperwork has been completed and received by the Admissions Office by the due date.
A new student applying for admission to AISE must submit the following documents to the Admissions Office:
- A completed application form
- Six recent passport-sized color photographs
- An original electronic birth certificate (Egyptians only)
- A photocopy of the student’s passport
- Original academic end of year reports for the previous two years (including the most recent report from the current school)
- Official transcript of high school courses and credits for students in Grades 9 to 12
- Confidential School Report submitted directly from the most recent school.
- Complete parent questionnaire (one per family)
- Ministry of Education required documents
Please note, school documents presented in languages other than English must be accompanied by official translations. Once all documentation has been received, the applicant will be notified if they have met admissions standards or not. If standards have been met, the student will be granted an admissions assessment.
Families are notified within a few days after testing whether or not the student has met admissions standards. A one-time, non-refundable first installment is due within seven days to reserve the student’s place for the following year. If no place is available, the first installment can be paid and the student may be put on a waiting list.
Please note, AISE also offers a comprehensive International Baccalaureate Program for students in Grades 11 and 12. Students applying for the IB program must complete the regular application process, and if accepted to AIS, they will then be scheduled for an interview with the IB Committee. Further testing may also be necessary. Acceptance for the American diploma does not guarantee acceptance into the IB program.
If you have any further questions, please contact the Admissions Office during school hours.
