International Student Program

St. Francis High School proudly welcomes students from all over the world.

The vision of our International Student Program is to promote international understanding, to create memorable and diverse learning opportunities, to transform critical intercultural perspectives, and to nurture global connections. Some of our International Students attend St. Francis High School for a few months for an “American experience” and to enhance their English language skills. Other international students attend our school for a true four-year St. Francis High School experience and ultimately earn a St. Francis High School diploma.

Acceptance of International Students is based on academic achievement, performance on standardized tests, co-curricular involvement, and English Language proficiency. 
St. Francis High School is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year.
