International Students

mds-internationalMount de Sales Academy is proud to have an established and reputable international student exchange program. Not only have we created a long-term partnership with St. Denis International School in France, but we also are proud to host more than 20 international students during each academic year.

Our international program is open to middle and high school students from all over the globe. The experience is both challenging and engaging for MDS students and our international guests.

We are committed to providing outstanding support and resources for all of our visiting students by offering a two-year ESOL course designed to strengthen writing, speaking, and reading skills as well as help assimilate our international students into the MDS community. We also provide additional textbooks and resources, Rosetta Stone technology, and SAT/ACT preparation.  In addition to the standard tuition rate, our international families will be charged a $3,000 International Program Support Fee, to assist with these additional services.

MDS has a wonderful relationship with several international student agencies including China Project Hope, AnB Education, and AFS-USA. Chinese students who are interested in attending Mount de Sales Academy should contact one of these organizations to assist with the transition process. MDS is SEVIS approved and licensed to issue I-20 forms.

International students are encouraged to apply using our standard admissions process, which includes an application for admission, teacher recommendation, student questionnaire, official school transcripts, and an application fee of $50. Either the TOEFL or SLEP are accepted, and a Skype interview will be required.
