French Accredited Program
The number of openings varies year to year by grade level, but we are usually able to accommodate new students at each grade level with new enrollment of 1 to 10 students.
As an international school, we do expect some amount of mobility in our population, but we are not able to guarantee the number of places that will be available in any given grade.
We have made a few changes to our testing requirements this year and we will not be requiring OLSAT testing for our local applicants. We will, however, still require ISEE testing from all candidates applying to our Secondary International Program. We will be administering the ISEE at Awty to our applicants on December 3 with limited spots. Please visit www.iseetest.org to register.
Although ISEE testing is our preferred option, we will also accept SSAT testing (with character skills assessment).
ISEE: Register online at www.iseetest.org – Awty International School test site code: 447771.

We understand that applying from outside of the United States can be complicated. While we recommend visiting Awty and Houston during the application process, we will work with you to facilitate your application should you run into any obstacles meeting the application requirements.
