International Students

Gill St. Bernard’s has been host to students from Australia, China, England, Israel, Palestine, South America and South Korea. In keeping with the school’s motto, “The World is our Classroom,” Gill St. Bernard’s encourages all of its students to see themselves as global citizens and to explore world cultures. Welcoming international students into our community creates a richer educational experience for all of our students.  After graduating from Gill St. Bernard’s, the majority of our international students attend colleges and universities in the United States.

We will not be considering international student applications before May 1, 2017.
International students interested in applying to Gill St. Bernard's:
  • May apply for admission to the ninth or tenth grades
  • Must apply for the full academic year, which runs from September to June

Our international student program is small and selective; we admit no more than a handful of students to our Upper School annually. International students matriculate into our college-prep program on their first day at Gill St. Bernard’s. We do not provide ESL support, therefore International applicants must possess strong written and conversational English skills in order to be successful in our program.

Balance Matters at GSB. In addition to a rigorous course of study, the arts, athletics, student clubs, social activities and participation in community service are part of the culture of our school and enrich the educational experience for all of our students. All students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the many extracurricular activities that Gill has to offer. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor, and our international students benefit from the additional support they receive from our International Student Advisor.
