Students walking together

 

We are delighted you are considering applying to the American International School of Guangzhou. 

We are highly invested in admitting new families and students who believe in our culture of community, academic rigor, and whole-child development. 

We understand moving to a new school can be a big step not just for students, but also for families. We welcome applications throughout the school year, being fully aware that occasionally a family's move to Guangzhou is unexpected and can happen in a short space of time. 

Take a look at the steps involved below and get started whenever you are ready. If at any stage of the process you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.

 

Our student-centered approach leverages technology and provides creative and differentiated learning opportunities to ensure all learners achieve personal excellence.Dr. Bernadette Carmody,

Seat Assignment

We begin offering seats to successful applicants in early April. The Admissions Office continuously monitors seat availability throughout the year and notifies families in a timely manner of the possibility of joining our community. In order to maximize enrollment opportunities we encourage all families to apply for admission at their earliest convenience. Families do not need to have confirmed plans in place to make an initial inquiry. 

Waitlist

If your child qualifies for admissions, and there are no seats available in the grade level or program, they will be placed on our waitlist. As seats become available during the school year, we will offer them to students on the waitlist according to our admissions criteria. You must submit your application and your child must qualify for admission to the school before your child can be placed on the waitlist. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
