International Student Admissions

Shorecrest Preparatory School welcomes international applicants for at least one academic year into our dynamic educational environment. Our community prides itself on its welcoming nature and its commitment to helping students and families from all backgrounds transition smoothly to Shorecrest. Some of our international students reside with their families, while others live with a host family. Shorecrest is a Day School  and as such we do not provide on-campus boarding nor the coordination of selecting a host family.
In addition to our admissions requirements, international students applying for grades 5-12 should provide:
  • 2 years of academic transcripts, both in original language and with official notarized English translations with grading scale.
  • TOEFL scores for proof of English proficiency
Middle and Upper School applicants must demonstrate that they have sufficient proficiency in English to be successful in our college-preparatory curriculum. In lieu of an in-person visit,International applicants participate in virtual assessments or have an Admissions Interview prior to making an admissions decision.

*For detailed information on tuition and fees for international students, please contact the Admissions Office.

F-1 Visa/I-20 Form

In most cases, international students will need an I-20 form in order to obtain an F-1 visa to enter the United States. Shorecrest Preparatory School will issue an I-20 form after a student has been accepted for enrollment.


Please contact the Admissions Office at if you have questions. We look forward to working with you throughout the admissions process.
