Important information about our admissions process

In order to submit your application, you will be asked to pay an application fee of 1,500 SEK per child. This fee is not refundable even if the applicant is not accepted into Stockholm International School.


Acceptance to SIS

Acceptance to Stockholm International School is based on the applicant's:

  • Willingness to share in an international culture and uphold the educational values and visions of the Stockholm International School Foundation.
  • Past and present academic performance - the applying student must be in good academic standing and respected by his/her peers and teachers as a member of the school community.

Requirements

Students wishing to apply to Stockholm International School must provide the following information in a PDF, zip or image file format:

  • A picture of the applicant.
  • A copy of the applicant's and parents' passports. Note: If you are a diplomatic family, we also require a copy of your visas.
  • A copy of the applicant's immunization/vaccination record.
  • Official school transcripts/report cards (in English) highlighting the last three academic years (where applicable).
  • Psycho-educational reports (applicable for students with special needs).

You will be asked to upload documents in conjunction with the application form. Documents for each category must be combined into one file, e.g. a PDF or a zip file. Please do not email your documentation as it overloads the school's email system and is not a secure nor accepted way to satisfy the terms and conditions of the application process.

The Admissions Office will review each application and then schedule a school tour with the applicant and his/her family. While we understand that it is not always possible for overseas families to arrange an admissions tour of the school, it is always preferable to do so.

The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review all applications and decisions are communicated to families by email when a space becomes available. Acceptance of the space must be done through OpenApply within one week. Failure to respond via OpenApply within one week will result in the space being forfeited.

Review of the applications takes time. Students are admitted as spaces become available. Please note that candidates are only considered if the application is fully completed; incomplete applications are not registered to the waiting list or reviewed by the Admissions Committee. There is no deadline for the submission of applications but we recommend that you send in your application as early as possible.

If you have any questions please contact our Head of Admissions.

Stockholm International School has approximately 600 students representing over 60 nationalities. Supported by an experienced and qualified faculty from over 20 different counties, the study programs, namely the International Primary School Curriculum (IPC), and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years and Diploma programs, allow the school to cater to students' needs regardless of previous educational experience. Upon application, we use the following age guidelines to assist us in our placement of students into the appropriate grade levels: <>
Parents/guardians of any applicant having a mild special need (either physical or academic) must submit complete reports from his/her teacher and therapist. Stockholm International School is not equipped to accommodate students with severe academic or physical handicaps. In the case where a special need has not previously been identified, Stockholm International School reserves the right to review the situation in order to assess the appropriateness of the student's presence at SIS based on our capacity to address his/her needs.
Specific Entrance requirements into the IB Diploma Programme Students should have an adequate level of English to be able to access the curriculum. The Diploma Programme is an academic programme requiring proficiency in the English Language as all instruction and course work are undertaken in English.

Students wanting to transfer into the final year of the IB Diploma programme will be assessed on an individual basis.
