Since StMM started the International Student Program in 2013, we have welcomed and graduated about 32 international students ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Currently, we have 2 international students enrolled in 4th and 8th grades.
We have had applicants from a variety of countries and regions including China, Mexico, Ukraine, Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Romania, Korea, and Peru. Our international program is robust! This is because of the devotion of our classroom and resource 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 write short response essays. 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.
International application fee is $500 (non-refundable).
Once a seat is offered, applicants are responsible for paying the following Tuition & Fees in full:
