Admissions Standards

The American School of Milan has a detailed application process, to ensure that we are able to offer places to students who are likely to be successful in our highly rigorous academic program.

How Our Decisions Are Made

ASM is committed to fostering a safe and dynamic learning environment where students can thrive. Applications to ASM are only reviewed once all the above documentation has been received. Applications which are not completed can not be reviewed. 

After receiving the full application, ASM will arrange for students, applying to enter grades 3-12, to sit entrance examinations in mathematics and English.

Our Admissions Committee will meet to determine whether a student is eligible and whether or not we can offer the applicant a place. If the student is accepted, a letter of acceptance will be issued and forwarded to successful applicants along with an enrollment contract. The enrollment contract and registration fee must be received within 10 days of acceptance in order to secure placement. If it is not received in 10 days, then the applicant will be placed on the waitlist. 

In its admission operations, ASM abides by the Principles of Good Practice as outlined by the National Association of Independent Schools. The NAIS Principles of Good Practice defines high standards and ethical behavior in key areas of school operations and are designed to help guide schools in becoming the best education communities they can be.
