About 20 percent of students come from outside the U.S., contributing to a diverse and international community bound by understanding and respect.
Applicants who live outside the United States should follow the same process as US residents, with only a few differences:
- TOEFL or SLEP Scores: If English if not your first language, TOEFL or SLEP scores are required as part of your application. TOEFL scores can be sent directly to The Putney School using school code 8079.
- Possible Skype or Phone Interview: If visiting Putney’s campus is not possible, we will arrange the required interview via Skype or phone. This interview is scheduled only after you have submitted your application in its entirety. On-campus interviews can be scheduled anytime.
- Student Visa: Once you have been accepted to The Putney School and have signed your enrollment contract, we will issue you an I-20 form that will assist you in getting your student visa.
Our ESOL Program helps students gain the language and academic skills to succeed in an American high school.
We’ve got answers to many of the frequently asked questions from international families.
