    2. A copy of the applicant's passport. Note: If you are a diplomatic family, we also require a copy of your visas.

    4. A copy of the applicant's immunization/vaccination record.
    5. Official school transcripts/report cards (in English) highlighting the last three academic years (where applicable). The official school transcripts/report cards must be combines into one file, e.g. a PDF or a zip file.
    6. Psycho-educational reports (applicable for students with special needs).  The psycho-educational reports must be combined into one file, e.g. a PDF or a zip file.
    You will be asked to upload these documents in conjunction with the application form. Please do not email your documentation as it overloads the school's email system and is not a secure nor accepted way to satisfy the terms and conditions of the application process.

    In order for your application to be considered, you will be asked to pay an application fee of 1,500 SEK per child. This fee is not refundable even if the applicant is not accepted into Stockholm International School. Please review for more information about our fees and bank transfer details.

    The Admissions Office will review each application and then schedule an interview and school tour with the applicant and his/her family, if needed. While we understand that it is not always possible for overseas families to arrange an admissions interview at the school, it is always preferable to do so.

    The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review all applications and decisions are communicated to families by email when a space becomes available. Acceptance of the space must be done through OpenApply within one week.  Failure to respond via OpenApply within one week will result in the space being forfeited.

    Review of the applications takes time. Students are admitted as spaces become available. Please note that candidates are only considered if the application is fully completed; incomplete applications are not registered to the waiting list or reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

    There is no deadline for the submission of applications but we recommend that you send in your application as early in advance as possible, as waiting lists are ordered by date of completed application.

    Applicants with Special Needs
    Parents/guardians of any applicant having a mild special need (either physical or academic) must submit complete reports from his/her teacher and therapist. Stockholm International School is not equipped to accommodate students with severe academic or physical handicaps. In the case where a special need has not previously been identified, Stockholm International School reserves the right to review the situation in order to assess the appropriateness of the student's presence at SIS based on our capacity to address his/her needs.

    If you have any questions please contact the Admissions Office.
