BAIS offers a program for students who agree to an education in a Christian environment and who are capable of achieving in a program dedicated to academic excellence. The birth date cut-off for entrance into 1st grade shall be age six on or before September 30th of the current school year.
The admissions procedures are accomplished through the following sequence:
All expat (non-Indonesian passport holders) students must have a Study-Permit from the Department of Education allowing them to attend BAIS.
BAIS is now able to take any number of Indonesian students as long as they are proficient in English. BAIS principals will make admission decisions for Indonesians who have limited proficiency in English depending on the level of ELD students in that specific class (see the chart above for classroom limits).
All normal admission procedures, except possession of a KITAS visa, apply to Indonesian students.
Please note: BAIS prepares students for post-secondary education in English speaking countries and as such does not prepare students for the Indonesian National Exam (Ujian Nasional) . If you are expecting your children to attend Indonesian universities BAIS is not the best fit as formal Indonesian classes are only electives at BAIS and success in test-taking is geared for English exams through the Collegeboard. These exams include the AP, PSAT and SAT tests. We welcome your students but must claim that our preparation is not for Indonesian universities but rather foreign universities who emphasize English instruction
