As CIS maintains a very good teacher to student ratio (approximately 1:10, one of the best in the world), class sizes are restricted.
Preference is given to expatriates, foreign passport holders, and non-resident Indians, in that order. Our academic year is from June to May.
The threshold for admissions at the Pre-Nursery is three-year old. To maintain the unique character of CIS, certain numbers of seats are kept reserved for admissions to various classes throughout the year.
Application forms can be downloaded from the link below and then submitted at the school office between 9am – 2 pm. Applicants will then have to register by paying a fee of INR 5000/- which may be paid by a demand draft or by credit/debit card at the school office. Please note no payments in cash are accepted.
As a part of our admission process for classes Pre-Nursery to Upper-Nursery, once the application form is submitted, the shortlisted candidate will be called for an observation.
From class-1 onwards, shortlisted candidates have to qualify for the written admission test in Mathematics and English. Successful candidates will be called for an observation session with our school counsellor followed by an interview of parents with our Board of Governors and Management. Admission will be offered subject to successful clearance of all the above mentioned steps.
Please note any attempt to bypass the normal admission process, or directly contact any senior functionary or board member to unduly influence the normal admission process, would automatically debar the application.
Many students from other schools join CIS at the ‘A’ Levels and IB Diploma Programme, for obtaining international high school certifications, which is very helpful for their higher studies abroad. For admissions to ‘A’ Levels and the IBDP, a ‘cut-off’ mark is decided every year depending on the general performance of Class 10/ IGCSE students and the availability of seats. This is followed by the usual entrance test and interview.
