Applications for admission to AISA will be considered on the priority scheme outlined below. However, all applicants must meet admission criteria before being admitted to AISA, regardless of status in Nigeria. AISA reserves the right to deny admission to any student who fails to meet all the requirements. While copies of documents or unofficial reports may be accepted for the purposes of evaluation, all required official documentation must be submitted, received, and verified prior to any official offer of acceptance.
1. Children of AISA overseas hired teachers or US Embassy personnel.
2. Children of AISA locally hired teachers.
3. US Citizens and children whose parents are US citizens (either parent).
4. Children from the diplomatic missions and international organizations (such as United Nations, World Health Organization, World Bank, etc.) and multinational corporations that undertake to pay tuition for children of employees to attend AISA.
5. Children who were previously enrolled in AISA (seeking readmission).
6. Children with siblings presently enrolled in AISA.
7. Children transferring from an accredited US curriculum school.
8. All other applicants.
Independent of the admissions categories above, enrolled students who are in good standing have the highest priority for continued enrollment and places will not be eliminated for these students in order to admit new students.
Previous attendance at AISA or space available does not guarantee admission or likely admission.
It is the responsibility of applicants and their parents to adhere to the starting dates published in the school calendar and available in the admissions packet and on the school website. Applicants are expected to attend school from the day they are admitted unless otherwise stipulated by the school.
Because of the amount of time lost and work that needs to be made up, as well as the unreasonable burden late admissions place on teachers and classes, admission may not be granted after ten school days but upon exceptional circumstances, regardless of space availability. Students transferring directly from another school system and who have been in attendance in the current school year prior to transferring will be admitted. Their leaving grades from the previous school may be accepted as evidence of attendance and for the purpose of assigning grades and credits for the period prior to attendance at AISA, provided all other admissions requirements have been met.
Admissions will be made on a case by case basis by the division principal, after a thorough review of the student records and, as needed, in consultation with the appropriate classroom/subject area teachers.
Regardless of when students are admitted to the school, it is the responsibility of the student to make up and complete all work missed due to the late admission, as required by the administration.
