ACS has a rolling admissions policy that starts as early as October 1 of the year prior of the requested year of admission. We recommend that you apply early so that we can reserve placement and organize the appropriate evaluations and interviews.

Students applying from abroad can be admitted during the school year; however, students applying from Bolivian schools may only be admitted at the beginning of the first or second semester of the school year and must comply with the attendance requirements of the Bolivian Ministry of Education.  The requirement of the Bolivian Ministry is that no student may miss more than 24 days in any single school year.

Applicants must turn three by September First to apply to KG3, 4 by September 1st for KG4, 5 to apply to KG5, 6 to apply to First Grade and so on for the remaining grades.

The sports program is strong in elementary and secondary. A variety of activities form the sport/athletic opportunities for students. ACS Calvert has a long history of hosting and participating in Friendship games with La Paz schools, and schools in Cochabamba and Santa Cruz. Boys and girls participate in competitive soccer, volleyball, basketball, track and field. The sports facilities are excellent, and include a gym, indoor heated pool, rock climbing wall, and a lighted soccer field.

The Fine Arts program offers our elementary and secondary students a variety of opportunities to develop new abilities and interests, as well as discover new talents. The students learn how to express their potential through dance, music, visual arts, and creative workshops. We believe it is important for our students to develop their minds and bodies, and to manage their energy in a positive and constructive manner.
