The Most Common Questions
The Admissions Office begins accepting applications on December 1 for the school year beginning in August of the following year. Admissions at AES is offered on a rolling basis. As such, we would encourage you to complete applications as soon as possible to secure seats for the coming school year.
An application is processed only when all required documents and necessary payments have been submitted. Please try to send all required documents and fee payments together; they may be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If all documents are legible, the originals may not be required.
Should I send my child’s achievement and extra-curricular award certificates to the admissions office?
No. You should only send the required documents from the checklist, including any special learning needs documentation. If additional information is required, we will contact you.
No. All applicants, regardless of nationality and status, must complete the application process, be determined admissible and finally be formally accepted before a seat is offered.
Confidential Recommendations are School-to-School documents and must arrive at the Admissions Office directly from either the teacher or the school. Confidential Recommendations may be sent via email, fax, or post in a sealed/stamped envelope. Obtaining the confidential recommendations is the responsibility of the parents, even during the summer months.
Yes. Please complete the Inquiry Form, and we would be delighted to meet with you and your family and offer a tour of the campus.
No. Interviews are not required for admission. However, in certain instances, an interview may be requested before an admissions decision is made.
Once an application is complete (all required documents and appropriate fee payments have been made) it usually takes up to a week to process the application. Please note that during peak times for application the review process may take much longer. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. As AES nears capacity, non-US passport holders will be placed in the wait pool, according to priority category and seats will be awarded as they become available.
Is it possible to sit in on a class or meet with a teacher, counselor or the building principal on a visit to the school?
Due to the high number of applications and to ensure that services to our current students are not compromised, applicants do not meet with faculty or staff outside of the Admissions Office. If there are questions the admissions office is unable to answer, we will get the appropriate information to you.
No. Students must reside with at least one parent or guardian in Delhi.
No. New students must be physically in their seat within 14 days of the first day of school or within 14 days of the offer of admission if admitted after the first day of classes. Otherwise, the offer of admission is void and the seat is forfeited. Returning students should refer to the school attendance policy for their particular division.
No. The US$500 Application Fee is a one-time non-refundable fee.
The US$2000 Advance Deposit payment is required by April 1, 2016 for August applicants. Anyone seeking admission at other times will be required to pay the Advance Deposit as part of the Application Process in order for their child’s application to be reviewed.
The Advance Deposit is 100% refundable prior to June 1 provided you have not declined a seat. The Deposit is also refundable anytime thereafter, if you are in the wait pool and have not been offered a seat.
*Please see the Advance Deposit Policy for detailed information.
