Admissions Process

Applying to CIS is a process in several steps. The initial steps have to be completed before your child's name can be entered on our list of applicants.

Student applications will be reviewed for the grade level corresponding to the grade level currently attended by the applicant or following the grade he/she has just completed. Feel free to study our Birth Date Guide as an indication of where your child would be placed age appropriately. However, the final grade placement is made by the Principals on the basis of the child’s previous academic placement, report cards and admissions assessments.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the year and new students may join the school during the school year if a place is available in the appropriate grade level.

Students enrolling at CIS must be in residence with a parent or grandparent(s) at all times. If a student is not living with the parents but legal guardians have been assigned, please submit the Legal Guardianship Agreement together with the application. Unfortunately, CIS does not offer boarding facilities.

Step 1: Online Application and Supporting Documentation

We offer an online application module that we kindly ask you to complete to start the application process. The link is in the box to the right.

Step 3: Placement Evaluation and Assessment

Mandatory assessment for grades 9 – 12 will not be scheduled until all relevant documents have been received and reviewed by the Admission Team and the Application Fee and Registration Fee have been received.

Our placement process seeks to ensure that the CIS programme is appropriate to the abilities and expectations of the students we accept. Evidence of any special needs programme dealing with either learning difficulties or gifted ability that a student may have been involved in, must be provided.

Assessment will not be scheduled until all relevant documents have been received and reviewed by the Admission Team.

CIS reserves the right to close an application at any stage in the process, including after initial acceptance, should a family fail to disclose relevant or requested information, or if it is discovered that CIS is unable to meet the educational, social, emotional or physical needs of an individual child.

Primary School

Acceptance of applicants for Primary School is based on documentation from the applicant's current and previous school(s). In some cases an applicant may be required to complete a placement evaluation/assessment and final acceptance will be dependent upon the satisfactory completion of this assessment:

Primary School: Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten applicants are placed according to date of birth, appropriate maturation, language and development level.

Pre-Kindergarten applicants must be able to use the toilet independently before starting school.

Primary School: Grades 1-5

Applicants for grades 1 - 5 may be required to complete a placement evaluation/assessment interview or testing of basic Mathematics and English reading and writing, and final acceptance may be dependent upon the satisfactory completion of this assessment.

Middle School: Grades 6-8

For students applying for entry in to Middle School (grades 6 – 8) The Online Placement Instrument (OPI) for English and Mathematics will be used.

Final acceptance is dependent upon the satisfactory completion of the assessments.

In cases where applicants demonstrate a lower level of English proficiency, the student will be invited for further assessment with our English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department.

High School: Grades 9 - 12

For students applying for the High School grades 9 – 10, the Online Placement Instrument (OPI) for English and Mathematics will be used, as well as a written Language and Danish test (if applicable).

For students applying for the High School grades 11 - 12, a written assessment will be made in Mathematics, English as Language A and, where appropriate, in German, Spanish or French as Language B as well as Danish as language A or B for applicants who have already studied Danish.

In cases where applicants demonstrate a lower level of English proficiency, the student will be invited for further assessment with our English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department.

Step 4: Start of School

Students starting at the beginning of a new academic year will be invited to New Student / Parent Orientation Day two to three days before the first school day. If possible, it is recommended that you arrive in Denmark a week before school starts.

Students in Grade Pre-K - grade 3 starting during the academic year will, following their acceptance, be invited for a half-hour “Meet & Greet” with the teacher and students prior to the first day of school. Students can expect to start school the day after their “Meet & Greet”.

Pre-Kindergarten students start the enrollment at CIS with a minumum of ten half days of instruction before being enrolled in to the full-day progrram.
