Admission Welcome

Thank you for your interest in The International American School and for including us in your search for the right school for your child and family. IAS is a coeducational, international school providing an unparalleled educational experience based in an atmosphere of honor and character, for our Kindergarten through Grade 12 students. We are located on the Agricultural Road 2 K past Abees Gate in Alexandria, Egypt. 

While you will find a wealth of information about IAS and our admission process here on our website, the best way to experience IAS is to come and visit our campus. Throughout the Admission season we offer an Open House and Exploratory Sessions which will allow you to take a tour, sit in on classes and meet the students and faculty that make IAS the special place that it is. You are also welcome to contact our offices directly to schedule a tour and visit to the school. Should you decide to apply for admission, all of us in the Admission Office look forward to assisting you and your family? As part of the admission process, we require all applicants to spend time on the campus. ALL applicants will be interviewed during their visit day. 

The mission of The International American School is to foster in students a lifelong commitment to intellectual exploration, individual growth, and social responsibility by inspiring and supporting them to strive for academic and personal excellence within an ethical framework that places the highest value on honor and respect for others. Therefore, IAS seeks to attract engaged and curious learners who have the ability and a desire to participate in and to learn from our full program, and to contribute to the school.

The Admission Committee strives to admit, for each class, the most qualified academic students while creating a diverse community that is balanced in the following areas (in no particular order):

• Children of families new to IAS, faculty and staff, and siblings of current students

• Gender

• Diversity in race, culture, religion, ethnicity and socioeconomic background

• In Middle and Upper School Admissions, we also balance our community with an eye to applicants’ interests and talents in a variety of areas including the arts, athletics, leadership and service.

We believe this balance brings a breadth of perspective and strength to our community that enhances the learning experience for all.

Thank you again for your interest in IAS. We look forward to seeing you on campus and working with you during the Admission process. Please contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns.
