The Application Process
Thank you for your interest in The British International School of New York. We hope the information below and other links in this section are helpful as you begin your journey with us.
We recognize that some of our families may be applying from overseas or other parts of the U.S. and may require some assistance with an unfamiliar application process. We do therefore encourage you to please contact us if you have any questions relating to gaining admission, or the school in general; we are here to help smooth the process.
Applications will open for 2017/2018 on Monday August 28th. You may apply directly by clicking the orange TADS button below. You may also contact us to schedule a private tour at a convenient time by calling 212 481-2700.

Please allow 45 minutes for this meeting and be assured that there will be appropriate toys and activities for your child. On acceptance of a place for your child, they will be invited in to school for a classroom visit.
