Alverno Heights Academy welcomes girls and boys from around the globe to apply for TK to 8th grades with the intention of graduating from Alverno.
In line with the mission of empowering each young student to be exactly the person she wants to be, Alverno seeks applicants who are interested in participating in Alverno’s extracurricular programs.
In order to provide a completely authentic experience, we limit the number of international students we accept.
Once a student is at Alverno, international students will take part in activities, study beside–and become friends with–American students. Because our school offers such a special experience, we have certain requirements that must be met.
International boys and girls must speak sufficient English to succeed in our college-prep curriculum. Our teachers and fellow students are very helpful and supportive and our international graduates have transitioned successfully into college careers both in the US and abroad.
