International School of Louisiana (ISL) is a tuition-free public charter school. Families must apply to ISL through OneApp. Applications are accepted in “rounds.” Please see below for deadline dates.

Watch this video to see how the OneApp works!

Applications are only valid for the following school year, meaning the child must be five years old by September 30, 2021, to be eligible to submit an application during the 2021-22 Main Round. Please pay close attention to deadlines.

As a reminder, OneApp is now an online-only application. Families will only be able to submit an application at www.EnrollNOLA.org.

  • Applicants for Kindergarten do not need to have any experience in French or Spanish; ISL does not require pre-admission testing for Kindergarten students.
  • Students who would like to join ISL for 1st grade are not required to speak French or Spanish if they join ISL’s 1st grade at the beginning of the school year; students who wish to transfer into 1st grade after September 1 must demonstrate the appropriate level of Target Language (French or Spanish) proficiency.
  • Prospective students in Grades 2nd through 8th will be admitted only if they are appropriately experienced in their language of study and successfully pass an entrance exam in the target language (French or Spanish). Applicants for grades 2-8 must be able to read, write, speak, and understand grade-level material in their target language. For example, an applicant for 3rd Grade French must be able to do their 3rd Grade math, science, social studies, and language arts schoolwork in French. The majority of successful applicants are students who have previously attended a language immersion school or a school in a country where French or Spanish is the official language. Students may only test once a year.
  • Admission into Kindergarten through 8th Grade is based on the OneApp lottery system and seat availability.
  • The OneApp Main Round is now closed. Parents who submitted an application during Main Round will receive notice of school placement in April.
