Dear Parents and Students,
These are difficult times for plan-making. It can feel almost surreal to be making arrangements and important decisions about schooling for months in the future when there is so much uncertainty about what will happen around us even in the coming days. Our admissions department is here to help make sure you have as much information and help as possible during this complicated period to make the best decisions you can for your family.
ISA made the decision to temporarily switch our mode of teaching and learning to distance learning on 13 March 2020 as part of our efforts to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our community. With demographics as international as ours, protecting the health of all our students, parents and staff took a big, concerted effort, and we are very pleased with how this unprecedented change to distance learning has worked out for the school thus far. If you would like to learn more about distance learning at ISA, you can find a lot of helpful information here.
The admissions office is open, albeit in a remote working form. We are here to help if you need us, and we’ll continue to plan with optimism about the future. If situations change to disrupt things on your side or ours, we will adjust and adapt together.
Applications are welcomed from all students who can benefit from a challenging, international, university preparatory, English language education. Recent growth has often meant that having space for everyone who would like to join us at the International School of Amsterdam has proven difficult, but ISA exists to serve international families and students and we endeavour to prioritise such applicants as much as possible in our admissions processes. Please see our Admissions Policy for further information.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we wish you and everyone close to you good health and strength in adversity.
The ISA Admissions Team
