Admissions Process

Welcome to JAIS! Please Click here to review our Admissions Policy. When you have provided us with all the requested information we will be happy to start the admissions process, which has 5 parts to it. For more information about the admissions process, please follow the Admissions Checklist.

Step 1: Contact JAIS. Click here (or email ) to let JAIS know of your interest in applying and to ask any questions you may have. If you are in the country you are welcome to arrange to visit the school and have a tour of our campus. If you are not able to come to campus, we can arrange a virtual visit and begin making some ZOOM connections.

Step 2: Complete all Application Forms.

Return all forms to our office: 

If applicable, please provide a Psycho-Educational Evaluation and IEP.

Step 3: Payment of Deposit for registration fees in cash, or by check payable to: WALWORTH BARBOUR AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (or “WBAIS.”). A deposit is required along with the application forms. Credit card payments can also be made over the phone or in the JAIS office.

Step 4: Admission Discovery Process: This will involve an interview for us to get to know your child/ family.  When you arrive, there will be a baseline/ placement process where we can gather more information in an age appropriate manner.  This will help us to learn more about your children and to give them the best possible start and support in their new school.  

Step 5: Completing the Application File. Before a student starts at JAIS these forms will need to be completed and submitted:

  • a copy of the applicant’s passport & entry ticket
  • report cards (preschool-grade 8) for the previous 2 academic years
  • recommendation forms
  • copy of the immunization record
