Transfer and International Students For The 2019-2020 School Year

While the curriculum is designed as a four-year program, The Academy accepts a selective number of international and transfer students into the 10th and 11th grades every year. Please contact the Kitsana Salyphone, Director of Enrollment Management, first to discuss your options and application process.

At this time, we do not have a boarding or home-stay program; however, there may be consideration for a boarding option based on interest starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

Please complete this survey if you are interested in a boarding option.

All international students must live with a parent or legal guardian appointed under the Illinois courts and/or be under the care of their international service/organization, regardless of legal age.

Once you have visited us and submitted the online application with non-refundable $150 application fee, we will will coordinate a Shadow Day visit, which starts in October, and confirm your audition date. After you successfully advance through the audition, we review your Academic Paperwork. All transfer and international applicants will have an in-person or phone interview, along with the parent interview. Tuition Assistance is not available for international students at this time.
