admissions decisions

Decisions will be mailed to families in March.

Should you receive a letter of acceptance, in order to guarantee a place for your child, you will be required to return the Enrollment Agreement within 10 days of its mailing along with a registration deposit.

Any spaces in the school that have not been filled after the 10-day return period will then be made available to wait pooled applicants, one at a time on a rolling basis. This rolling admissions policy will continue until the beginning of school in early September, depending on space availability in each class.

how decisions are made

The Admissions Committee determines the final decisions. Decisions are based on a holistic view of the child, including the child’s ability to learn, receptivity to language acquisition, interaction with other children, positive demeanor, and, if applicable, academic performance through previous transcripts. The Admissions Committee is also looking for a shared educational philosophy between the school and the family. Silicon Valley International School admits students without regard to race, religion, color, gender, creed or sexual orientation.

Silicon Valley International School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin or sexual orientation in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan payments, athletic and other school administered programs.
