Complete and submit an application along with the application fee.
Meeting with the Director of Admissions
An in-person or virtual meeting with a member of the admissions office is a required part of the application process. This will be an opportunity for us to get to know a little bit more about your family as well as giving you a chance to ask questions about our programs.
Visits provide children with the opportunity to meet BISC Lincoln Park students and faculty, and are a required part of the application process. Group, Individual or Family visits will be an option for children applying to PreNursery, Nursery, Reception and Year 1 and individual visits will be scheduled for applicants to Year 2 – Year 6.
School Records and Additional Information
When completing the online application you are able to upload your child's most recent school report/transcripts. You can also send these via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our admissions team can also provide a school report form for your child's current teacher to complete and submit. Please print and sign the School Report Form and give it to the school in which your child is enrolled if currently attending a school or educational program. This release authorizes the applicant’s school to provide the Admissions Office with confidential information and school records. The Admissions Office welcomes any additional information about an applicant’s academic and social skills that you believe may be helpful.
Families should also complete our online Admissions Questionnaire
Personal Recommendations are optional. A Personal Recommendation often provides an additional perspective, allowing the Admissions team to get to know the applicant and/or applicant’s family better. Please note that these forms can be sent in at any point during the application process. You can submit them via mail or as an attachment to an email, email@example.com.
Parent Statements are optional. All applicant families will have an opportunity to meet with a member of the Admissions Office as part of the application process and are welcome to share any additional information by submitting a parent statement. Please note that these forms can be sent in at any point during the application process. You can submit them via mail or as an attachment to an email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to send us a copy of a recent family photo to attach to your child’s application. You can either upload as part of your online application or email an electronic copy to email@example.com.
