Every institution of learning strives to provide excellence in their program. One way is through clear policies of enrollment and admission. Attending Xi’an International School is a privilege determined by evaluating each student for his/her readiness to be successful. These standards have been designed to be fair and consistent for each applicant. Each student (and one parent of the student) must hold a valid residence card and passport from a country other than the People’s Republic of China.

Admissions Process

XIS upholds a non-discriminatory policy and accepts applications from any eligible student. Students are required to hold a passport issued by a country other than the People’s Republic of China. We welcome applications regardless of race, gender, religion, class, or economic status.

Parents and students are required to have an interview with the school principal prior to enrollment. This is an opportunity to learn more about the XIS philosophy, curriculum, and facilities, as well as a chance to have any additional questions answered.

All new students are required to take a basic entrance exam given by the school that covers reading, writing, grammar & punctuation, speaking & listening, as well as math. The Admissions Committee will then evaluate proficiency, as indicated by the test results, to help assess placement and make sure we can meet the needs of each student.
