LIS Enrollment Process

Our enrollment process is an important part of building our community. This process ensures that Luanda International School (LIS) will meet each student’s needs and that each student will be successful and happy at our school. We look forward to welcoming your family to our community.

Why complete the application process?

We strongly encourage every family to complete the application process as soon as placement in Angola is a possibility. Enrollment at LIS is not guaranteed. All families, including certificate holders, are responsible for completing the online application for enrollment and submitting all required documentation for each applicant seeking admission.

Our enrollment process is designed to ensure that every student will thrive at LIS.  In Luanda, there are few English-medium schools and limited resources for students with special needs. In order to fully evaluate each application, we expect that all families will provide full and accurate information on any learning, medical or other needs (including assessments and reports) of the applicant.

Please be aware that LIS:

  • Cannot support students with moderate to high special needs;
  • Requires students in Year 6 or higher to pass an English language assessment prior to admission;
  • Reserves the right to place applicants (including certificate holders) on a waitlist, in order to maintain age and curriculum-based class sizes; and
  • Considers academic performance when evaluating each applicant.

What happens next?

Successful applicants will receive an enrollment confirmation letter. The enrollment confirmation letter is a guarantee that there is a place for the student at our school. It is crucial that you receive the enrollment confirmation letter before accepting an assignment in Luanda.

    Take three ambitious year 12 LIS students, a great medical cause and the highest mountain on the African continent and you have a recipe for a truly inspiring life experience. Our ‘Trek for Meds’ team including Molly, Nabeeha and Denise successfully planned and completed an expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa! Their collective goal was to raise money to buy malaria preventative medicine and tests to distribute to families in rural areas of Angola. Malaria is a recurring cause of child mortality in Angola. The Trek for Meds team received tremendous encouragement and recognition from their immediate and global communities. The overwhelming support helped the team to conquer the mountain and smash their original fundraising goal of USD3,000. This is service leadership in its purest form. In the spirit of our mission statement, I am confident this amazing story will inspire many other students to find a unique way to ‘thrive in the world’.
