IMPORTANT: FASRI's cut-off date is September 1. Applicants must have turned the required age by that date (i.e. their birthday must be August 31 or earlier). Children coming from a French system in France or abroad are accepted in the grade declared by their former school. Other students will be placed in the grade FASRI considers most appropriate.

Sibling applicants receive special consideration at the key entry point of Petite Section/Preschool level only, but are not guaranteed admission. French nationals and francophone applicants receive special consideration at all grade levels depending on availability of space but are not guaranteed admission.

FASRI's key entry point is at the preschool level, where approximately 18 openings are available, with new openings at the prekindergarten and kindergarten levels.

Application deadline: January 31, 2021 for entry in September 2021. We encourage you to send in your application as early as possible to aid the administrative process. After January 31, new applications will be considered according to availability of space.
