Most expats in Egypt send their children to one of the country's many international schools. Though fees tend to be high, international schools can ease the adjustment process for expat children as they are able to continue with their home-country curriculum in their home language. This also allows for an easy transfer to schooling back home, if need be, and culminates in highly respected school-leaving qualifications including the likes of the British A-Levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and the American High School Diploma.

There are a number of international schools in Egypt for expats to choose from, offering a diverse range of curricula. Most of these are in Cairo, Giza and Alexandria.
