Enrollment Timeline

We have a year-round admissions policy with no firm deadline for enrollment. While the majority of enrollments take place in March/April for the following academic year, we are also able to admit students throughout the year.

In an effort to keep the highest quality standards and thereby the student/teacher ratio low, places may be limited. This especially applies to our Kindergarten enrollment. In particular, places in the Pre-Kindergarten program are limited to five and there may be a waiting list.

Admission Requirements  

  • Applicants for our Pre-Kindergarten program must turn three years of age by December 31 of the year they will enroll.
  • Applicants for our Kindergarten program must be completely toilet-trained by the time they enter the Kindergarten class.
  • Applicants to Grade 3 and higher should demonstrate a good understanding of the German language (please contact the Administration Team if you have questions regarding the language requirements)
