Admissions

St. Mary’s International School seeks students from the international community who will benefit from its college-preparatory curriculum. Students are admitted on the basis of transcripts from previous schools, standardized test results, and a personal interview with the prospective student and parents. A screening test is part of the admissions process. Students are admitted without regard to race, creed or national origin.
