The AISL school year starts in August and ends in June. Applicants for admission to AISL are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible, as the school may be at capacity in certain grade levels.
An application for admission will not be processed until the Director of Admissions has received all the necessary documents, as outlined in the “Application Requirements” section. While school is in session, the expected processing time is three to five working days.
The Admissions Director will review the application and contact you if any further information is required.
Offer of Placement
If an opening occurs in the appropriate grade level, and your child meets all admission criteria, you will be contacted by the Admission’s Director by email.
An applicant may be denied admission when there are concerns about academic, social or emotional stability and when AISL is unable to offer a program to meet adequately an individual student’s learning needs.
An applicant may be called in for an entrance assessment when a vacancy occurs at the appropriate grade level as determined by the student age/grade level guidelines. The entrance assessment may include: assessment in the basic skills, vocabulary, reading comprehension, spelling, mathematics and written expression. Students are expected to score at or above grade level in the above areas in order to be granted admission.
Student Waiting List
If an application meets admission requirements, but the applicant is applying for enrollment in a grade that is full, then that applicant will be placed on the student waiting list. The waiting list is maintained in a priority manner as to the date of application and priority listings. Because of AISL's Admission Policy, an applicant's position on the student wait list may change if there are subsequent applications from families from other categories.It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian of students on the waiting list to email the Admissions Office and update their child's file at least every 6 months to keep their child's file active. Failure to do will result in the child being removed from the wait list and the application being deactivated. Only applications that are complete will be considered for admission when spaces become available.
