The Awty International School seeks to enroll motivated students who are eager to succeed in their academic and personal pursuits. We seek to build an international community that values individuals of diverse backgrounds, talents and interests. We consider the whole child and evaluate not only cognitive abilities, but also the ability to contribute to and benefit from the rich social and cultural life of the school. Parents play a vital role in our community and we value families that are globally minded and will be supportive partners in furthering the mission and vision of the school. The admissions committee bases its decisions on three key areas – aptitude, achievement, and character – as discerned from previous school records, achievement testing, teacher recommendations, and interviews or group visits.
The Awty International School is the only school in Houston accredited by the French Ministry of Education and confers the French Baccalaureate Diploma in addition to the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Families relocating to Houston from other French accredited schools may apply for admission. (To search French accredited schools outside of France, click here.) As Awty is an independent school, admission is selective – not guaranteed – and families must follow a standard application process. Students are admitted based on availability of openings and the criteria outlined above.
In shaping classes and admitting students, among qualified applicants, the Awty Admissions Committee gives special attention and consideration to applicants from various constituencies:
- Children of Awty alumni,
- Children of Awty employees,
- Children who have siblings enrolled at or concurrently applying to Awty,
- Children of parents being relocated to Houston by Awty-recognized corporations.
