International Applicants

St. Dominic Savio welcomes international students to be a part of our community. In recent years, we have welcomed students from Brazil, China, Germany, Korea, Mexico, Spain, Vietnam, and others. St. Dominic Savio admits qualified international students. We are looking for international students with strong English proficiency skills, are academically motivated, a desire to be involved in school activities and a willingness to embrace the cultural experience.

Savio students are very welcoming and they will understand that English isn't your first language... Once you start making friends by finding common ground, you will overcome the boundaries that were once overwhelming. I promise you that amazing experiences will await you.  

~David, Class of 2017 from Seoul, Korea
 

This year, Savio has the highest number of International Students since the school opened in 2009.
