We are a through-train school, and once your child enrolls at Stamford American School HK, they can attend until graduation – no need to reapply.

*All students must hold a valid Hong Kong visa prior to the start date

Applications are considered in priority in the order of date received and other admissions priority criteria. Early applications for our international curriculum school are favored. Admissions will be offered from December / January onward based on space availability and grade applied.
