Thank you for your interest in Escuela Bilingüe Internacional! Not only are we devoted to inspiring our students to become motivated learners, we are dedicated to consciously building a diverse and vibrant community. If you would like to know more about our school, please do not hesitate to schedule a tour or contact us (link sends e-mail) directly.

Step One

Fill out our inquiry form  and schedule a tour.

Please complete our online Inquiry Form (link is external) to schedule a tour and to allow us to learn more about you and your family. Our tours are designed to allow prospective families to experience a typical day at EBI. We would love to meet you and show you our creative, diverse community and school. You will have the opportunity to see our faculty and students actively engaged in the classroom, and speak directly to some of our directors and learning specialists. Plus, you’ll see the International Baccalaureate in action!

Step Two

Submit a 2020-2021 admission application and supporting documentation.

  1. Create a User Account
    Go to our secure online admission form and you will be prompted to create a username and password. This allows you to make changes to your application whenever you would like before you submit it.

  2. Complete your Child’s Application and Upload Photo
    Fill in the required information and upload a recent photo of your child. Once you’ve finished the application, select the submit button.

  3. Application Fee
    Once your application has been submitted, you will be prompted to pay a non-refundable $75 application fee with a debit or credit card. Your application will not be processed until this fee has been paid.

  4. Confirmation
    After you have submitted your application and paid your application fee, you will receive an email from EBI confirming that they have been received. Our admissions team will then contact you to discuss your next steps. If you do not receive a confirmation email from us, please contact our Admissions Department at (510) 653-3324 ext 107.

  5. Submit a Teacher Recommendation Form
    For our Kinder to 8th grade applicants, download the applicable school evaluation. After you have filled out the top portion of the form, give it to your child’s current teacher or school administrator to complete. The teacher or school administrator needs to return the form DIRECTLY to Escuela Bilingüe Internacional electronically, by fax, or by U.S. Mail. You may want to provide the school with a pre-stamped/addressed envelope to facilitate this part of the process.
