Families move to Singapore at different times during the year, sometimes without much notice, which can be tricky for transitioning their children’s education. At Stamford American, we have two formal intakes in August and January. Even though the majority of students join at this time, we also support rolling enrollments throughout the year as and when families arrive. Singapore is a transient country, so this is just a way of life - our school adopts a friend buddy system for new joiners, and our caring teachers welcome new students every week.
Our 2017/2018 academic year officially began on August 14, however if you missed this date, do not worry as you can still apply now for the mid-year enrollment coming up in January 2018. Places are limited in some grades which often fill by the end of January, so please contact our Admissions team to inquire and progress an application.
