How To Apply

We accept applications on a rolling basis if space is available.

We have designed the application process to be simple and efficient.


Visit the School

We invite you to visit the school and experience our vibrant and engaging learning environment for yourself.

Join us for one of our online information sessions, scheduled tours or open house days, or if those dates aren’t convenient for you, arrange for a private visit. This fall we offer online information sessions and private live campus tours.

Submit Admissions Application

To apply:

  • Click on the “Apply Online” button on this page to access the online application form.
  • Fill out the application then enter your name on the signature line to electronically sign the document.
  • Choose “credit card” or “bank withdrawal” and enter your payment information for the application fee (bank withdrawal is the preferred form of payment).
  • Click “Submit” to transmit the form and your payment to EBGIS.

An application will not be complete until EBGIS has received both your application form and the application fee. Make all checks out to “East Bay German International School”.

Follow-Up Visit

After you’ve submitted your admissions application, we will invite you and your child for a follow-up visit. If geographic or scheduling challenges make an in-person visit impractical, we can arrange an online video conversation.

Admissions Decision

We will review your application carefully and notify you of the admissions decision by e-mail and/or post. If your application is approved you will receive an enrollment contract and additional information via e-mail.

Return Enrollment Agreement

If you decide to enroll your child at EBGIS, please submit the enrollment agreement and pay the required fees by the date indicated on your enrollment agreement. To submit your enrollment agreement:

  • Open the enrollment agreement file that we will send you via DocuSign.
  • Fill out required information as indicated.
  • Sign the form via DocuSign where indicated and click “Finish”. Please note that both guardians need to electronically sign the agreement using the individual email link sent to their respective email addresses.
  • Pay the required fees by check or online upon receipt of our electronic invoice.

After you have submitted the enrollment contract and paid the fees due, EBGIS will return a countersigned enrollment agreement to you together with instructions regarding other forms and information. Please note that you must submit additional enrollment documents before your child may begin attending classes.
