Preparing Boys for Life

International Students

Thank you for your interest in The Haverford School!
Unfortunately, we are not accepting international student applications or issuing I-20s at this time. Because the situation surrounding COVID-19 is ever-changing, we encourage you to please check this page for any information or policy updates in the future.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Suzanne Tassoni at
The Haverford School is committed to cultivating a community that is reflective of the world in which we live.
While we welcome students from around the world, because we are not a boarding school, we enroll a small number of international students. We only accept applicants for grades 9-11. Please read on for details on applicant requirements and our international student enrollment process.

Applicant Requirements

  • The applicant must be fluent in English (reading, writing, and speaking). A TOEFL score of 100 or above is required.
  • The applicant’s family is responsible for tuition, books, food, housing, and any supplemental costs.
  • All international students must live with a host family while attending Haverford if the parents/guardian do not plan on living in the United States. It is the responsibility of the student’s parents/guardian to find a host family. The host family should be comfortable communicating in English.
  • The student and his family are responsible for making arrangements for visas, transportation, and finances. All international students must have a valid passport. The student is also required to have health insurance for the duration of his stay at Haverford. Proof of insurance will be requested as part of the application process.
