St. Joseph High School is pleased to offer admissions to International Students, and encourages all to share the experiences of secondary education, and life in America. At St. Joes, we value the rich diversity of cultural experience that international students bring to our institution. 

Application Process

St. Joseph High School is a day school and does not provide boarding options. Therefore, all international applicants must retain the services of an International Student Agency in order to secure homestay/dorm options. 

Agencies will also provide assistance with a student's admission application. Please contact one of our suggested agencies for your next steps:

If you do not require a homestay/dorm arrangement, but will be applying as an international student and will require an I-20 for an F-1 Visa, please contact Jessica Costa, Director of Marketing and Enrollment Management at
