Step 4 - Submit Official TOEFL Testing Score Report
We require a TOEFL score of 70 for admission to 10th grade. We strongly recommend submitting the TOEFL score for 9th grade. Because St. Mary's has a rigorous academic curriculum, students need strong English skills to succeed. These tests give the admission's committee an accurate view of the student's English skills. For more information on TOEFL testing or to schedule a test date, please go to www.ets.org. When submitting scores please use the St. Mary's School TOEFL code 6262.
Step 6 -Submit Form I-134
In order to issue an I-20 form, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement requires that all parents of applicants submit proof of their ability to support their child's studies. Please print this form, fill it out, scan it and email it to Ms. Sheffield (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 7 - Schedule an Admission Interview
When you have submitted your complete application to the Admission Office, you will be contacted for an interview. Admission interviews generally take about 20 minutes and are an informal, “get-to-know-you” time in which we will also look for English proficiency. International students may conduct the interview over Skype.
Step 8 - F-1 Visa Transfer for Students Already in the U.S.
If you are transferring from another school in the U.S. and already have a F-1 Visa, please sign the top portion of the International Student Transfer Form and submit it with your application.
