International & Exchange
If you are interested in exchanging with a student at our school, please contact email@example.com. Exchange students do not pay tuition but may be responsible for other fees.
Short and Long-term International Students
We welcome international students to kindergarten through 12th grade. We are registered with SEVIS and can provide the I-20 for the F-1 student visa. International students can choose to study for a short period of time (less than a year) and be considered a Short-term International Student, or for more than a year in order to complete a high school diploma, and be considered a Long-term International Student. These students pay tuition as appropriate.

English Proficiency Requirements
(for long-term international students)
For high school applicants we recommend one of the following test scores:
Kindergarten and 1st-4th grade: No test requirement.
5th and 6th grade: Language assessment by ESL Coordinator and Class teacher. This may involve an interview through Skype, or the student will submit some of their work in English and/or video.
7th and 8th grade students will need to submit an English proficiency test or equivalent. We recommend the iTEP-Slate.
All of our English language learners take English language support classes that we provide (for an additional fee). High school students who score under 80 will need to take English language support classes as well.
For questions related to English language proficiency and English language support please contact the International Program Coordinator: email@example.com
