Admissions Procedure

The American School of Paris has a rolling admissions policy and will accept applications from new students throughout the year.  Once an application is completed, you will receive notification about the admissions decision within one month.

A visit to the school is recommended but is not required. We certainly enjoy welcoming all applicants to the school! 

Tours are scheduled between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:30 pm.  Interviews and tours should be scheduled at least a week in advance by emailing or calling +33 (0)1 41 12 86 55.



Step 1 - Application

Once the necessary paperwork outlined in Step 1 is completed and received by the Admissions Office, the application will be reviewed by the relevant Division Director and the Admissions Director.  You will be notified within one month of the admissions decision.

Step 2 - Acceptance

ASP tries to accommodate every applicant, however it should be noted that acceptance is not automatic, and there are cases when we cannot meet the specific needs of a student. Please see acceptance criteria in Step 2. 

Admissions decisions are made based on the application forms provided in Step One and the required student transcripts. However in some instances students may be required to take tests. The most common is an English test for non-native English speakers entering grade 5 or above. 

Step 3 - Enrollment

Once accepted, enrollment at ASP is dependent upon space available in the relevant classes. Should space not be available, accepted students are placed on the waiting list. Priority is given to students with siblings already enrolled in other classes. See Step 3.

Step 4 - Matriculation

Once a student has been accepted, a Registration Contract will be mailed to parents. Students are only officially registered at ASP when the signed contract, due within 7 days of the issue date, is returned to the Admissions Office. See Step 4.


Fees are invoiced when we have received the signed contract and the Invoice Instructions Form provided with the contract. Payment in full is due upon receipt of invoice.
