International Admissions

Image-text that says. Challenging minds, creating opportunities, changing lives.

Welcome, International Applicants & Families
We are happy you are here to learn more about the international admission process.  We encourage you to browse our website and learn about our college preparatory program, grounded in the four pillars that represent our students as Scholars, Artists, Athletes, and Leaders.  We live our mission every day in and out of the classroom to maximize the potential of every student in a safe, faith-affirming environment.  Our student body is diverse, welcoming, and engaged in multiple aspects of our programs across all four pillars as part of their everyday coursework, artistic expression, leadership opportunities, and athletics.  We encourage and support our students as they explore their interests and develop the interpersonal skills necessary to become confident, independent critical thinkers, who are prepared for the challenges that await them in college and beyond.

Ascension Academy accepts applications from international students who are interested in studying at Ascension for a minimum of two consecutive years of high school in grades nine through eleven. Applications may be submitted at any time, with enrollment to begin at the start of each school year or by exception as a semester transfer student if currently enrolled in an accredited school in the U.S. or with approval by the Admission Committee.

International tuition, including homestay costs and school-related incidentals during academic sessions for the 2024-25 school year, is $30,000.  Families can expect the initial cost of uniform items that would be ordered in advance and online to be in the area of $200-$250 USD.  Uniform items are not included in incidental costs during the academic year.

Once a student has been accepted for the upcoming school session, Ascension will electronically send an offer letter. Once a family has accepted the offer and paid the tuition deposit of $1,000, Ascension will issue an I-20 for the purposes of obtaining an F-1 Student Visa. Please become familiar with the resources and guidance for studying in the U.S. found at the Dept. of Homeland Security website:
