What are the admissions standards?

Camden Hills Regional HS only accepts international students between the ages of 14-18 who are in good standing in their home schools. We expect international students to be able to attend and succeed in regular classes that are all taught in English. All international students must pass a personal interview via SKYPE. 

What is the tuition?

For the 2018-2019 school year, the tuition is $24,000 for the full school year. The tuition is subject to change on a yearly basis. 

What does the tuition cover?

The tuition covers all classes, a school issued iPad, ELL support services, participation in all clubs, organizations and sports. 

Can I attend for just a semester?

Yes, international students can attend our school for one semester.  The cost is half the tuition.

Can I attend your school for more than one year?

Unfortunately, the US Government does not allow international students to attend public high schools for more than one year.  Therefore, if you come to our school you have to either transfer to a different US private school or return to your home country.  All the international students who have attended our school for a year have been accepted at private schools. 

Where do international students live?

All our international students live with American families.  We do not have dorms.  Living with an American family provides our international students with safe and supportive environments.  Basically, international students are treated as just another member of the family.  All host families are approved by the high school administration. 

What is the Host Family Fee and what does it cover?

The host family fee is $800/month or $8,000 for a 10 month school year.  The fee is paid by the international student’s parent directly to the host family. Payments can be paid by semester or on a monthly basis.  The host family fee covers room and board; travel to and from school; and basic household necessities.  International students do need personal spending money for clothes or other personal items.
