International Applicants

Harvey is a friendly and culturally diverse community with a small and growing International Student Program. Currently, approximately 5% of our Upper School students are international.

Admission Requirements

In addition to satisfying the standard application requirements, which include transcripts from their current school, students must submit at least two recommendation letters (one from an English teacher), and undergo an interview. International students are required to submit their TOEFL scores (75 or above is strongly desired), and a written statement on how they would benefit from a Harvey education.

The Harvey School encourages English-proficient students in grades 9-12 from all over the world to consider joining our thriving student body.

Please note that we require all entering international students to complete an English reading/writing workshop during their first and second enrolled year, as we do not offer traditional ESL instruction.
