International Applicants

In accordance with our mission, Notre Dame Academy welcomes students from around the world.  We believe that international students enhance the education of our community in and out of the classroom.  We currently have students from China, Korea, Egypt, Australia, India, Spain, Italy, Qatar, and Germany enrolled in our school.

Notre Dame Academy is registered with SEVIS, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System and is authorized to issue I-20s to international students so that they may acquire an F-1 Visa.

Notre Dame Academy is a day school and does not offer housing services for international students. Interested applicants who require housing should apply through The Cambridge Institute; contact for an application.


Notre Dame Academy strongly encourages entry into the 9th or 10th grade for international students.  Exceptions are made on occasion for well qualified students interested in other grades.  Please inquire for more information.

Notre Dame Academy does not offer any ESL classes or additional English language support, therefore strong English skills are required for international applicants.  Students applying through The Cambridge Institute have access to additional support. 

In addition to the regular online application for admission, we require a Skype interview with one of our admissions staff and copies of a passport.  International students not currently attending an English speaking school must submit a TOEFL, TOEFL Jr. or iTEP score.  International students may be subject to additional fees.

Applicants from China

International students from China may apply through The Cambridge Institute of International Education.  We partner with Cambridge to help students work through the admissions process and to ensure proper placement.  To submit an application, click here or contact our consultants at The Cambridge Institute at
