How To Apply

We have designed the application process to be simple and efficient. We will consider applications on a rolling basis, including those submitted after February 15, if space is available.

Process & Key Dates

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 scheduled tours or open house days, or if those dates aren’t convenient for you, arrange for a private visit.

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. For applications received by February 15, 2018, we will notify you no later than March 8, 2018. 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 secure your child's place in his or her class, we must receive your signed enrollment agreement and the required fees by March 16, 2018. To submit your enrollment agreement, choose one of the following options:


  • 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”.
  • Pay the required fees by check or through our online payment portal.


  • Print the enrollment agreement that we will email to you.

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.
