International applicants also need to submit a copy of your passport. If English is your second language, please submit iTEP, TOEFL (TOEFL Code: B525), TOEFL Jr., or Duolingo English Test scores. We do not use minimum scores to eliminate students from the application pool.

The remaining requirements for all applicants can be found on our Application Checklist.

I-20 and Visa Process:

Once a girl is fully enrolled at St. Margaret's School, we will create and send the I-20 via UPS. It is the responsibility of the girl and her family to secure a student visa in their home country.
