International Student Program

The International Program at Saint Mary’s High School is in its seventh year and has included students from China, Brazil, Israel, South Korea and Vietnam. Our purpose is to provide international students with the opportunity to grow as students, develop as leaders and be challenged to meet their full potential, in a safe environment.
Saint Mary’s provides unparalleled support and service to our international students, from general admissions to post-arrival and beyond. If you are an international student interested in applying to Saint Mary's High School, please contact:
