International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

Questions

WHERE CAN I FIND THE ADMISSIONS FORMS?

You may fill out an online application form by clicking here.
 
The forms below are provided for your convenience. You may mail, fax, or deliver them to our office personally. You may also contact our office for physical copies of these forms.

WHEN CAN I APPLY?

ISQ accepts applications for admission throughout the school year. However, applications for admission after the beginning of the 4th quarter are generally not accepted and will only be considered for exceptional circumstances.

WHEN I FILL OUT THE APPLICATION FORM, WHAT AM I COMMITTING TO?

Filling out the application form simply helps the ISQ Admissions Department track your child’s progress through our system. There is no official commitment to attend ISQ.

WHAT IS ISQ'S ENROLLMENT PRIORITY POLICY?

ISQ adheres to the following enrollment priority policy:

  • Children of ISQ’s parent company, LDi, staff and associates
  • Brothers and sisters of students already attending ISQ
  • Children who speak English fluently
  • Children who do not speak English fluently

IS THERE A WAITING LIST?

If a student meets the admissions requirements but there is no space available, he or she may be placed on a waiting list. Students will be added to this list according to the enrollment criteria. This waiting list is dissolved at the end of the school year and parents need to re-apply if they wish to be considered for enrollment for the following school year. ISQ strongly encourages parents to look for other educational options while their child is on the waiting list.

IF MY CHILD FAILS THE ADMISSIONS TEST, WHEN IS THE EARLIEST THEY MAY TEST AGAIN?

A) Applicants who do not meet the minimum admissions testing requirements must wait three months before they may take another test. The initial test fee will cover for the extra tests within one year.

DOES ISQ ADMIT STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES?

ISQ will make every effort to meet the needs of each child we admit. Unfortunately, we are not able to meet the needs of students with severe learning disabilities at this time. Parents are expected to inform the school if their child has a known learning disability.
