ASB has a selective admissions process. Decisions are based on a comprehensive review of the student’s application, considering academic history, social maturity, and English language proficiency to evaluate whether the applicant has the motivation and the ability to achieve academically at ASB.
Preference is given to native and advanced English speakers. If space is available, applicants may be considered for admission with a beginner level of English in grades PK3 through 2nd grade. Applicants for grades 3 and higher are expected to have an advanced level of English, particularly with respect to reading and writing, in order to be successful in our program.
Amongst equally qualified applicants, priority consideration will be given, in no particular order, to:
Given the volume of applications we receive, we cannot guarantee admission based on any of these factors. The final admissions decision is determined by the Admissions Team.
For 11th grade/IB applicants, the student must have passing grades in all subjects in 9th and 10th grades. IB transfer students will only be considered on an exceptional basis when all of the subjects align with ASB offerings, and the student must be able to enroll by October 15.
For PK3 applicants, the child must be toilet trained and able to feed him/herself before starting school.
Neither race, creed, color, gender, religion nor sexual orientation is considered within the admissions criteria.
