International Students

All applicants who are not U.S. citizens are considered international applicants.

All applicants must demonstrate a strong command of the English language verified by our standardized testing requirement. While we welcome applications from students from all over the world, we do not have an English as a Second Language (ESL) program.
International students for whom English is a second language must also take the TOEFL test in addition to the SSAT. Our school code for the TOEFL is 8144. In addition to the TOEFL, students are also welcome, but not required, to submit their Duolingo Test results.

There is a $120 application fee for International applicants. Read more about the application process.

Applicants from China

Episcopal High School has recently partnered with Vericant, a China-based organization that assists independent schools in interviewing students from mainland China. To make good use of the interview process, admissions candidates residing in and attending school in mainland China are required to interview with Vericant before scheduling a visit to Episcopal.

Vericant will conduct preliminary interviews with candidates and offer short writing prompts. Please note that Vericant does not evaluate candidates; rather Vericant sends all information to Episcopal High School’s Admissions Office for assessment. The Admissions office at Episcopal will then select students from among the completed Vericant interviews and determine which students will be offered a second interview with a member of the Episcopal Admission team. Invited families may elect to interview on campus at Episcopal or via Skype.

Please note that your Episcopal application fee does not include costs associated with the Vericant interview. Contact Vericant to schedule an appointment in a city near you. For interview scheduling and fee information, please visit http://www.vericant.com/students. Interviews with Vericant must be completed and submitted to Episcopal by December 1.
