Since StMM started the International Student Program in 2014, we have welcomed and graduated about 25 international students ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Currently, we have 4 international students enrolled in 1st, 5th, and 6th grades respectively.
We have had applicants from a variety of countries and regions including China, Mexico, Ukraine, Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, Hong Kong, and Romania. Our international program is robust! This is because of the devotion of our classroom and resources teachers. Our friendly and upbeat student body guides newcomers in their adjustment and transition to a new and different learning environment. We are an official TOEFL Junior test site and offer high school application preparation guidance for our F-1 students.
International applicants are encouraged to submit an online application. Along with the application, we require applicants to submit teachers' recommendations, transcripts, and fill out a questionnaire. A phone interview will be conducted after first round screening. Upon admission and payment of first year's tuition, we will issue I-20 form required for the applicant's F-1 visa interview. The international application fee is $250. The tuition and instructional fees are the same as our local students.
We do not authorize any third party agency for student recruitment. No extra fees are charged except the application fee, instructional fee and tuition during the application process. All applications are completed online or by contacting our international admissions officer for step by step assistance.
