West-Mont welcomes students from around the globe each year into our school community!
We are committed to welcoming international students to our school. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed enrolling students from around the world to our school community, including students from a variety of countries such as China, Japan, Germany, Spain, France, and Korea. Having international students in our community allows for the kinds of exchanges that enrich the educational experience for all students.
All international students whose primary language is not English are required to take the TOEFL. West-Mont will process international student applications, conduct initial screenings, coordinate with International Organizations, arrange for housing in proximity to the School, and act as a liaison between the School and the student's family. Upon arrival, we will offer services to students and their families to support a successful transition to West-Mont, including orientation programming in September. Though West-Mont Christian Academy does not offer dormitory housing, we will assist to coordinate all home-stay arrangements for students studying in the U.S.
Entrance Exams Requirements
West-Mont does offer English as a Second Language (ESL) supports, however, all instruction and assessment are conducted in English. All international applicants must demonstrate proficiency in both oral and written English.
For applicants whose native language is not English, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required. A minimum score of 60 is expected.
In addition, all applicants are asked to submit results of the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) as part of the application process for admission to West-Mont.
