AAN Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in our school. The American Academy Nicosia is an all-inclusive English Language speaking school that accepts children from the age of two years and eight months (during the calendar year in which school is started), subject to availability. Proficiency in English language is not required as we support our students with EAL classes once enrolled with us.

To enroll your child in our school, it is necessary to follow our admissions process as outlined below:

A Pre-registration form must be completed and returned to the admissions department. Please complete the form from our website by clicking here. It is important for parents applying to our school to understand that places for new students may be limited. We therefore strongly recommend that parents contact our admissions office directly for better understanding and current enrolment availability.

Our admissions department will arrange an assessment for your child with the appropriate department within the Academy. You should provide the Academy with your child’s most recent school report and any other information that the Academy may require.

Pre-school & Kindergarten Department: Your child will be assessed by a Pre-school teacher.

Primary Department (Key Stages 1&2): Your child will be interviewed and assessed by entrance tests in English and Mathematics. Parents/guardians and their children will be invited for an interview with the Primary Head.

Secondary Department (Key Stages 3,4&5): Your child will be interviewed and assessed by entrance tests in English and Mathematics and, for native Greek speakers, an additional Greek examination. Note that for Greek speakers the Greek exam is required after they pass the Entrance exams in English and Mathematics and it functions as a placement exam in the Greek classes. An interview may be arranged if needed with the Senior Teacher.

For Key Stage 4 & 5 there might be additional exams required depending on the (I)GCSE and A Level options of the students.


Following the assessment and interview a letter of acceptance will be sent to you are offered a place. On the receipt of an acceptance letter, you have 10 working days to register your child in our school.

Once registered, you will receive a confirmation letter from our admissions department confirming a place for your child. After registration your point of contact will be the Primary office (for Pre-school and Primary department) or the Secondary office.
Note: Your child’s placement is not secured until you have been offered a place and you have completed step 3 of the registration process.

We support overseas applicants by arranging the admissions process in your country of residence.
