* Please note – International students can only apply for grades K-8 if they will be living in the States with their parents. We do not accept international students residing in the States under a guardian arrangement until they are in grades 9-12. We do not accept new international students for 12th grade only. Students must also be English proficient, as we do not offer ESL courses as part of the curriculum. For additional commonly asked questions, please refer to our FAQ document (FAQ for International Students).
