Admissions Process

Every September, ISTP begins the application process for the following academic year. After March, rolling admissions is available for grades in which we have an open seat.

Admissions Requirements

List of 3 items.

  • Language Requirement

    There is no language competency requirement for those entering into our Early Years Program (Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten) or Kindergarten.

    Considerations will be made for those interested in the elementary school that has no prior formal language education. All applicants will need to take a 1:1 language proficiency test as part of the admissions process to better understand the foundations of their language skills unless they are transferring from an accredited school from the French Ministry of Education. 
  • Age Requirements

    • 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 ISTP 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.
  • Other Requirements

    Foreign students will be required to comply with all US immigration regulations as the school does not have an I-20 program.
