Admissions

We offer an international education on three campuses in the greater Zurich area in Switzerland, and are able to design individual learning pathways for each student. Our school has been accredited since 1971.

We recognize that your choice of school will be one of the most important decisions you can make for your child. Our Admissions Team is here to help and guide you through the process.

You can come for an onsite interview and tour of any of our campuses or, if you cannot make it to Zurich, arrange an online interview. Either way, the interaction will be customized, as we listen and find out what is most important to you in your search for a school and then discuss how the ZIS experience might look for your child.
