Information for International Students
All applicants who are not US citizens are considered international applicants.
If you are a dual citizen, whose native language is not English, you are required to take the TOEFL exam.
English Language Requirements
SG does not offer an ESL program and therefore requires students to be highly proficient in speaking, listening, writing and reading the English language.
All international applicants are required to take a TOEFL exam in addition to the SSAT.
We require that students applying achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 90.
Application and Immigration Process
In order for a student to receive an I-20 Form and apply for an F-1 Visa, a student must first apply, be admitted and enroll at SG before we will issue the I-20 form.
According to United States regulations, families must also provide the School with financial certification and proof of the applicant’s citizenship before an I-20 is mailed.
