Entrance Exam, Application, Interview
The entrance exam will be waived for international students who can provide sufficient information for evaluation: transcript; attendance record; teacher recommendations; and, if available, other standardized test scores. Please complete an application available on this website under Admissions. Once the application is complete, the applicant will be contacted to schedule a telephone or Skype interview.
In addition, international students must submit proof of English proficiency by providing TOEFL (or other) scores and a writing sample. Due to the challenging nature of the college-preparatory curriculum, a high level of English proficiency (reading, writing, and speaking) is necessary upon entry to the school. Cascia Hall can provide ESL support but does not offer extensive coursework in English as a Second Language. The following minimum scores (or equivalent) are recommended for applicants:
Toefl iBT (61 - 72)
Toefl PBT (450 - 500)
International students must make their own home stay arrangements with family, friends or an agency. The school does not have the resources to provide host family support. Students are not allowed to live on their own, even if they are 18, and must reside with a host family during their school years at Cascia Hall. If necessary, the school can put international students in touch with an agency that can provide homestay services.
If you are interested in becoming a host parent for an international student attending Cascia Hall, please contact Makala Welsh, 918-746-2604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the regular tuition and fees, international students may be charged a premium to cover special services, management fees, and ELCE (English Language and Cultural Enrichment) support.
