International Student Program
Each year, SPSG selects a small number of international students for admission. We seek international applicants who, like our local students, are confident and resourceful and who are prepared to succeed in our rigorous academic program, live comfortably in an American family, and take advantage of the exciting extracurricular and social opportunities that SPSG offers. Our international students are scholars, athletes, and artists, and each contributes her unique talents and voice to our community.
Our International Student Program is founded upon the Episcopal premise that communities and individuals are strengthened by a diversity of perspectives. We believe that it is a privilege and a gift to be a part of an international community that fosters respect among students, forges friendships across national and cultural boundaries, and prepares girls – both international and American – to lead in and contribute to our global society.
SPSG is a day school, and thus homestays are an integral part of the SPSG International Student Program. We carefully select and partner each of our international students with a nurturing and active host family. Host families are fully engaged with their host daughter and encourage her to immerse herself in American culture and family life. Likewise, host daughters are fully engaged with their families and are encouraged to share their own interests and traditions with their host family.
We are especially interested in international applicants who come from schools with whom we share a formal and close relationship or from families or organizations with ties to SPSG. Such relationships ensure a network of support for international students. Click here to apply.
