2. Apply

Before you begin, check our table for grade equivalents and seat availability. Then, submit an online application and all required documents.

Document requirements vary depending on the grade/year, nationality and previous schooling of the applicant. Document requirements typically include the following:

  • A digital passport photo of the applicant. 
  • Applicant’s passport. (Saudis with dual citizenship must apply with their Saudi passport.)
  • Parents’ passports.
  • Applicant's birth certificate (3-5 year olds).
  • Current year-to-date report card in English.
  • Report cards for the past two years in English.
  • Standardized test scores.
  • Contact information for the last school attended. ISG will contact the school in order to obtain a confidential reference.
  • Special Education/IEP/504 records, including psychological test results (if applicable).
  • Financial clearance letter, if transferring from a KSA school.
  • Ministry of Education (MOE) approval letter (Saudis).
  • Application fee proof of payment.

The admissions team will review the application materials and notify you of any additional assessment or document requirements. Your child will be scheduled for an assessment, interview or classroom visit, depending on the grade they are entering. Only applicants with complete applications will be scheduled for assessments.

Once the application and all required assessments are complete, the school’s admissions committee will review your child’s application.

You will receive an email with an admission decision. If no seats are available in the year/grade, your child may be placed on a waitlist. If your child receives an offer for admission, you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the offer within a given time to allow us to manage our wait pool.

Upon receiving an acceptance notification, you will be asked to submit the following enrollment documents.

1. Government documents

    • For families moving to Saudi Arabia, the student's final (last) report card must either have a Hague Apostille stamp OR be attested by the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission/Saudi Embassy in the country where the report card was issued.

    • For applicants coming from in-kingdom schools outside the Eastern Province, the applicant’s report cards must be attested by the Foreign Education Department in the province where the school is located.
