When will I know whether or not my child has been accepted into AAS?
We start accepting applications in January for entry into school at the start of the next academic year in the following August.
As virtually all our classes are currently at capacity, we can only accept new students into places that come free, as other families leave us. The following is an approximate timeline for the Admissions process.
February: Current families are asked to complete a re-enrollment questionnaire to indicate whether or not they intend to remain with us for the upcoming year.
February/March: Data collation.
April: Re-enrolment contracts are sent out to all families who expressed an interest in remaining at AAS.
After this, we can begin to review new applications, but we may not be able to give you an accurate assessment of your child's chances of being admitted until closer to the end of the academic year. All applications are classified in one of seven admissions categories. Please see which category applies to you. Depending on the number of spaces coming free, applications are reviewed by category, in date order of submission.
April – August: Applications are reviewed and approved, contracts sent out and new students enrolled. There may be last-minute changes in enrolment, as families who had planned to stay in Moscow are re-assigned to other postings or new arrivals fail to receive visas. If your child is on the waiting list, we may unfortunately not be able to confirm their place until the very last minute. We do understand that this is very frustrating for incoming families, but we would ask for your patience, as this situation is dependent on factors entirely beyond our control.
