How to Apply

We aim to provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment where each child can thrive and has the opportunity to develop their full potential. Applications are accepted, and admission is granted, on a rolling basis throughout the year. However, parents are advised to apply as soon as possible as there is limited availability.

Admission decisions are made based on an assessment as to whether the child can benefit from BIST educational programmes in accordance with our admissions policy, and provided we have space. BIST does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, culture, citizenship or ethnic origin. We welcome applications from students who will benefit from an international, English language education. Please read the complete BIST Admissions Policy for 2017-18.


How to Apply


Our friendly and professional Admissions team is here to support and guide you through the application process. 

1. All parents must complete an admissions application form (and all the supporting documentation) for each child and submit it to school either in person or via email (admissions@bist.ge).

2. School will inform parents if a place is available subject to admissions assessment* and forward a non-refundable admissions fee invoice of $50 along with other required enrollment paperwork.
 
3. School will arrange for an admissions assessment.

4. A place is guaranteed once all fees have been paid and relevant paperwork completed. 

*Online admissions assessments can be arranged with the child’s current school if appropriate to take place offsite.

Should you require any personal assistance with your application, or have any other questions about the school, please contact the Admissions - admissions@bist.ge.


Placement Policy 

Verification of age by passport or birth certificate is required for all students entering BIST. Year level placement is primarily determined by the student’s age at the start of each academic year (see the table below), together with reports from previous school(s). All students will be assessed in an age-appropriate way to see whether they can access the school curriculum. For Years 4 and above, placement is determined by the assessment of previous school records, teacher recommendations, parent information and the completion of student assessments. A confidential school report will be sought from the child’s previous school.
