Programs and Classes

AIS follows a three-term school year system, with start dates, end dates, and breaks comparable to a north-American school calendar. Check the web or print version of the current school calendar for program term start and end dates as well as holidays, events, and breaks. Please plan family vacations and trips around the school calendar as much as possible to ensure continuity of education and experience for your child.
All regular classes at AIS begin at 9:00 AM.

Kindergarten 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Elementary 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

Summer VBS 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

PM care ends at 5:00 PM

Office Hours

The office is open on school days from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If you need to visit the office for assistance or information, it is best to do so while your child is in class. When possible, please plan to finish office business before your child is dismissed at the end of the day. 


The following events are celebrated annually, usually on a Saturday or national holiday during the year:

Fall Festival - October

Christmas Celebration - December

Easter Celebration - March

Graduation - June

The elementary department puts on two of their own events each year. The winter Showcase focuses on language skills, and the spring Celebration Showcase highlights project work from the January mini-term. The showcases provide an opportunity for students to develop presentation skills and for the community to celebrate the unique abilities and talents God has given them. Attendance is not limited to elementary parents, though they will be given priority if necessary.
