Application Timelines

Our school year generally begins in the third week of August and ends in the middle of June. Check our calendar for details.

High School Application Deadlines

High School (Grades 9 to 12) applications must be submitted by August 1 for first semester admission or by December 1 for second semester admission.

Applications for Elementary School (Pre-K, Kindergarten, Grades 1-5) and Middle School (Grades 6-8) may be received and processed throughout until the last quarter (which starts in April). Place availability however is not guaranteed.

Semester One (Late August to Mid-January)

Applications for the new school year are reviewed no earlier than February of the same year. Based on the admissions policy, decisions for early applications (reviewed in February and March) are communicated in the first week of April.

The Admissions Priority Categories will be maintained until April 1 for the start of the following school year.

Processing of late applications, especially those received after May and during the summer break, takes longer and may require 3-4 weeks.

Semester Two (Mid-January to Mid-June)

The application period for the Semester 2 begins in November. Families moving to Vienna from overseas are prioritized for mid-year admission.

Places may not be reserved unless the student's application has been received and reviewed positively and the school fees are paid in full.

Students entering Elementary School (Pre-K, Kindergarten, Grades 1-5) and Middle School (Grades 6-8) may start anytime during second semester until the last full month of school (May). Students are admitted if they meet the criteria, fulfill all requirements, and if places are expected to be available.
