International Applicants

December 12, 2013

Overlake welcomes applications from international students. Please review the following information before making a decision to apply:  

  • Applicants who are attending a school outside the United States, and/or require an I-20, are classified as "international" applications regardless of country of birth and citizenship.
  • The application fee for an international student is $200.00.
  • An international applicant follows the same application process as a domestic applicant. 
  • Either Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) or Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) scores including the writing sample are accepted.  The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or Secondary Level English Proficiency (SLEP) test do not fulfill the testing requirement; they will be accepted as additional documentation.
  • We do not accept mid-year transfers. 
  • Overlake does not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) or English Language Learning (ELL) classes. Students must be fluent in spoken and written English.
  • We are not a boarding school and do not arrange for homestays.  All students are expected to live with members of their immediate family or with a designated legal guardian.  
  • Overlake issues I-20’s for foreign nationals who enroll at Overlake. Once an I-20 is issued, it is the applicant's responsibility to obtain and F-1 student visa.
The Overlake School welcomes students of any race,
religion, national or ethnic origin, socio-economic status,
gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
