Our International Program
Our international program offers a terrific college preparatory education along with unforgettable life experiences. Our boarding school for girls in Virginia welcomes students from more than a dozen countries each year and instantly includes them as part of our friendly and diverse community. Each new international student is paired with an International Ambassador student mentor before she arrives, to help her adjust and find her lifelong friends. Students have fun weekend activities designed just for them, including regular trips to the international market to shop for foods that remind them of home. Our international students take full advantage of opportunities for service and leadership, participating as club heads, class officers, interns, or volunteers for local organizations.
Academically, our program is appropriate for students from an advanced level of English proficiency to those who are bilingual. Special English and history classes help those who need to improve their academic language skills. Our full-time Director of International Student Services supports girls in many aspects of their lives and when the time comes, our international students all do well in college acceptances and find that they are well prepared for college.
