Elementary School Admission

The general admission period for all grade levels ended on March 31, 2017.
However, JFKS is still accepting applications for priority admission from:

  • US Embassy families with diplomatic status
  • US DOD families with orders to Berlin
  • incoming American JFKS teachers

The admissions process depends on the grade level you are applying for. Please select the grade level of your application from the left hand side bar for more details.

Please be advised that admission is contingent upon the applicant being registered as living within Berlin’s city limits at the time of admission (see para. I, 1 of the “Admissions Regulations”). For applicants moving to Berlin, proof of residency in Berlin must be submitted before the beginning of the school year.

From September 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017 JFKS is accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year for the Elementary School, grades 1-6. For children born between Oct. 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012, we will accept Entrance Class applications between October 1, 2016 and Jan. 31, 2017.
