International students are welcome at our school. Under Federal law the school is authorized to enroll non-immigrant students. International students interested in applying should first contact the school Registrar to determine if space is available in the desired grade level.
We recognize that in order to be successful in their classes and to be able to take advantage of opportunities available at our school, it is important that students possess a basic command of both written and spoken English. It is also the expectation that once accepted, they will dedicate themselves to improving their English by participating in class and extracurricular activities and using English in their conversations. Research shows that those students who are most involved using English outside of class progress more quickly than those who limit their English usage to class.
In order to be accepted as a student, you must submit the following minimum iBT (Internet Based TOEFL) scores
9th grade —50
Students who are unable to reach the minimum score may apply to be a student in the English Language Experience, where they will attend all of the same classes as their English-speaking classmates, and will not be accepted as a student for the following year until they have met the minimum iBT for their grade level.
The TOEFL test is the most recognized tool for measuring English proficiency. There are several variations of the TOEFL, each with its own scoring. In order to avoid confusion, international students will be required to submit scores from the Internet Based TOEFL, often called the iBT. This test is widely available in testing centers. Booking a testing time may be limited and it may take several weeks to receive scores. Students interested in studying in the United States should schedule a test as soon as possible.
Students who are accepted to the school will experience a welcoming and inclusive student body and staff committed to their success.
