The Canadian International School of Beijing accepts applications throughout the year.  We use a rolling admissions policy which means that we will accept applications until a grade level is full.

Our Admission process is made up of 3 steps: application, student assessment and acceptance. Before being considered for admission to CISB, students must complete our online application and submit all supporting documentation.
