International and Diversity Students
Mount St. Joseph seeks students that are highly qualified academically. In our judgment, having students learn from each other is an important part of MSJ’s educational mission. Therefore, MSJ seeks diverse student populations that encompass a wide range of characteristics including geographic origins, social and economic backgrounds, races and ethnicities, viewpoints, special talents, and personal achievements.
Mount St. Joseph Academy welcomes students from around the world to its campus in Central Vermont. We have hosted students from China, South Korea, Thailand, Germany, Spain, Colombia, Brazil, New York and Boston. We provide housing in the form of “homestays” where students live with a Mount St. Joseph Academy host family. Hosts provide accommodations transportation, meals, in addition to guidance, friendship and assistance during the student’s tenure.
Mount St. Joseph Academy is registered with SEVIS, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, and is authorized to issue I-20's to international students so that they may acquire a F-1 Visa. In addition to the regular application for admission, international students may be required to conduct a Skype interview with the International Student Coordinator and other faculty members.
International Students coming from China and S. Korea should work through the Cambridge Institute to apply to Mount St. Joseph Academy. We are partnered with Cambridge to help international students work through the admissions process and to be placed properly. Please contact Cambridge Institute directly at Learn with Cambridge in the U.S. for more information about applying.
