NAIS Manila entry requirements
We’re a caring and inclusive international school community that’s open to children aged from 2 to 18. We accept applications all year round and new students can start at any time.
Application and supporting documents
After filling in our enquiry form and taking a tour, you’ll need to complete your child’s online application form. You’ll also need to send us the following documents:
- A copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport.
- A copy of your passport(s) and visa information.
- A copy of your child’s most recent school report.
- A copy of your child’s vaccination record.
- If applicable, a copy of relevant learning support documents that will help us understand your child’s additional needs.
You’ll then need to pay our Application Fee.
English language assessment
After receiving your form, supporting documents, and Application Fee, we’ll invite your child to sit an English language assessment. This ensures they can access our curriculum, which is taught in English, and immerse themselves in school life.
The format of your child’s assessment will depend on their age. For example, students joining us at secondary will need to demonstrate a higher standard of English than those starting in primary.
Offering and accepting a place
Once we’ve reviewed your application and assessment, we’ll write to you offering your child a place. We’ll also send you our terms and conditions and confirm their start date.
You’ll then need to accept the place – and pay our non-refundable Enrolment Fee – within two weeks.
