Admission
Information

Admission information

In our school, education is seen as a joint effort between the family and the school. As a result, we not only look for students with the ability to achieve academic success, but also families committed to our educational program and adopting our school’s educational philosophy.

ANDINO CUSCO INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL does not administer academic or psychological evaluations to students applying to the Early Childhood program through First Grade. Families are interviewed and admission decisions are based on the profile of families we look for.

Starting in Second Grade, in addition to looking for families that share our educational philosophy, we assess students’ abilities and potential to meet the objectives of this demanding bilingual program.

Applications for admission are considered based on order of submission according to availability.

The Admission Committee, comprised of Coordinators, the Psychologist, and the Principal, is responsible for this process.
