The school seeks to admit applicants and families who support the CDNIS Vision, Mission and Values statements, as well as the guiding principles of the International Baccalaureate programme. Further, the school strives to select applicants who will benefit from an inquiry-based conceptual programme in the Lower School and a rigorous university-preparatory programme in the Upper School.
Before applying to CDNIS, please take a moment to review our Admissions Policy and Procedures and our school year application deadlines for 2019/2020, and 2020/2021. We welcome prospective families to visit our campus, view the facilities, meet our staff and see our school in action.
