Admission and Placement


AISV does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation and welcomes learners from a diverse range of national, cultural and educational backgrounds and abilities.  The School’s program is challenging and requires high levels of motivation and commitment from every student. Admission is granted according to academic ability and the disposition to be a successful student. As a strong learning community, we expect families to engage fully with the school, supporting both its educational philosophy and community activities. The school reserves the right to refuse admission to any student who may not have the academic achievement or demonstrated dispositions to be successful at AISV. 

The American International School of Vilnius will accept students throughout the academic year as long as an appropriate place is available. If space is not available within a particular grade level, the student will be placed on a waiting list and then be considered for admission on the basis of the date the application was received.
