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.

Testing Requirements

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.

Register for the SSAT, the ISEE or the TOEFL. Tests are administered in the fall and winter of each year.

SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test). Most 9th through 11th grade candidates submit SSAT scores. (School code 6460)

Candidates taking the PSAT or SAT between September and January may submit either of those scores in place of SSAT scores.

ISEE (Educational Records Bureau Independent School Entrance Examination). (School Code 400085)

Candidates may submit ISEE scores in place of SSAT scores.

International Students must submit the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) in addition to the SSAT or ISEE.  (TOEFL code 3533)
