International Student Attendance

In FAITH, we SERVE, we LEAD, we LOVE and we LEARN.

As a Catholic school, we strive to become a community of believers where parents, staff and students seek to grow in the knowledge and love of God and one another.  In our pursuit of academic success, instruction emboldened by Catholic values functions as the underlying reality in which the students’ experiences of learning and living reach their deepest meaning.

As space is available, we welcome non-resident students who subscribe to our mission to join us on this journey.  International Student enrollment is open to students who would need an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility to obtain an F1 visa, students who already hold an F1 visa (I-20 transfer), and students who have any other type of visitor, education, or work visa. We are SEVIS approved and authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students.

Each year, there are options to register for an entire year or for a short-term duration of at least three months, minimum.  Due to the additional costs associated with this specialized enrollment, registration fees and tuition rates vary from the listed resident amounts.  Our 2020-21 rates are as follows:

The cost of tuition for visa students requiring an I-20 application is $15,500 annually per student Grades K-8.

Visa students requesting a short-term enrollment of less than six months, if accepted, are pre-billed $1,900 per month.

The Registration Fee for ALL international students is $550.

These rates include any additional fundraising requirements. 

Graduation and other individual fees will be collected during the year.

Due to archdiocesan restrictions, St. Madeleine Sophie School DOES NOT arrange for local homestay placements.  These plans are the responsibility of the international family and need to be communicated to and approved by the school prior to enrollment.

For 2020-2021 Enrollment

We are now accepting international student applications for admissions for the 2020-21 school year. We encourage families to apply early as some classes fill quickly.  All forms, fees and payment plans must be submitted via the online registration portal before an application is considered complete.
