  • language requirement

    There is no language competency requirement for those entering into our early years program (preschool and pre-kindergarten) or kindergarten, as well as the Upper School Language Acquisition program in grades 6 and up. Considerations will be made for those interested in the elementary school who have no prior formal language education. 

    Students applying to our German, French or Chinese program will be assessed for language proficiency to better understand the foundations of their language skills.
    Students who are transferring from an accredited school from the French Ministry of Education are not required to take a language proficiency test.
  • age requirement

    • 3 years old for Preschool
    • 4 years old for Pre-Kindergarten
    • 5 years old for Kindergarten
    Children will need to be the ages above by September 1st. Based on space availability, developmental readiness for an INTL education and/or prior school experience at a French Accredited School, considerations will be made for children born until December 31st.

    Children must be potty trained before starting school.
