Other Admission Requirements
Most private schools will require your child to take a standardized admissions test such as the SSAT. They will also require you to take the TOEFL if English is not your native language. The instruction and other communications in American private schools are given in English. As a result, proficiency in English is a must.
The schools in which you are interested will have detailed instructions about the international student application process. In addition, most of them make trips to foreign countries from which their current international students have come. Always ask if and when the admissions staff will be in your country.
