Thank you for your Interest in IMA! We strive to inspire our students to be creative and flexible in achieving their goals- and to be globally minded entrepreneurs.
IMA is in a rolling admissions phase for all three campuses. We are continuing to accept children on a first-come, first-served basis as we work to fill all of the classrooms. If you're looking for an immediate start, please be sure to list your preferred start date on the application.
IMA has three campuses but Ravenna requires us to select one main address which is our Bellevue campus. This address appears when you type in IMA into the search field. Essentially, at first, it will appear as though you're applying to the West Bellevue campus; however, the application will ask you to select a campus and language model.
Please note your child needs to be 15 mos. by your preferred start date to enter a Toddler classroom. To enter a Primary classroom, children must be 2.5 yrs. old and use the restroom independently by their start date.
Once families are accepted and extended a contract you then have the option of either paying an Enrollment Deposit equivalent to one month's tuition to reserve your space for September or not. Should you choose to wait, we are happy to consider enrollment if we have space available when you arrive.
Any applicant considering admission does need to have a completed application as well as have paid the application fee to be extended a contract.
Thank you for your interest; we hope to meet you soon!

If your current school has an account Ravenna and uses Ravenna’s repository services, they will see a list of all current students applying out. In order for your applicant's name to appear on that list (allowing schools to send files on your applicant's behalf), you must indicate "yes" in the question mentioned above as well as have paid and submitted your application to the school(s) in which you are applying to.
A school that is not the current school can still upload student records to Ravenna via their repository account. In this case, the school will upload the records to their repository clearinghouse.
Ravenna provides complimentary repository accounts for schools to upload application related materials, such as report cards and transcript. Records uploaded directly to Ravenna via the repository account are processed within 24-48 hours.
