Apply for Admission
Apply for Admission, Schedule a Tour, or Request Information
Thank you for your interest in NIS. Here is a link to the NIS Admissions Portal, where parents may request information, schedule a tour or apply online. Parents will be asked to create a user-name and password for their family. The online portal ensures more efficient communication between the prospective family and various NIS staff involved within the admissions process. Scheduling tours on specific days and times are also possible. Parents may still apply using the traditional paper application forms below, but online inquiries and applications through this portal are preferred.
For those parents who prefer not to inquire or apply online, you may contact the NIS Admissions & Development Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request an admission packet via email, or download the forms below to submit paper applications via postal mail or scanned and sent to the Admissions & Development Office ahead of time via email.
Either way, we encourage parents to contact the school as soon as possible if you wish to consider NIS as an option for their family.
If you have any questions about these documents or the required materials, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions & Development Office directly.

NIS has one form for applicants entering the ELC Preschool & Kindergarten, and one form for applicants entering into grades 1-12. The online application is the same as the paper application, but the online application is less expensive since all information must be uploaded digitally. Complete this form in as much detail as possible, one per applicant.
Applicants must submit reports from the past two years; if submitting in advance of final reports being available, these reports must be submitted when available. High School applicants must submit official records in a school-sealed envelope or arrange for them to be sent directly to NIS via postal mail. The admissions decision may be delayed if documents are not submitted in a timely manner.
NIS has one recommendation form for ELC preschool and kindergarten applicants and one for elementary, middle and high school applicants. All applicants should request their current classroom teacher or principal to complete this recommendation form and submit it in a school-sealed envelope together with the application materials.
