Doane Academy believes that diversity in beliefs, cultures and points of view broadens and enhances the educational experience.
In fostering such an educational environment, Doane Academy enthusiastically welcomes international student applicants for the upcoming 9th–12th grades. Current and previous International students have found Doane Academy’s safe and encouraging school community a place where they are able to fully immerse themselves in American culture. Doane Academy’s college preparatory curriculum and extracurricular programs promote full English immersion and prepare students for global leadership.
Doane Academy’s small class sizes, SAT Prep and top college admissions counseling prepares students for higher level education in the United States. From their first day, international students are welcomed into a community of peers who are also preparing to be lifelong learners, responsible members of the school community and informed citizens of the world. International students who are interested in attending Doane Academy must be prepared to enrich their lives academically, socially and emotionally through an American high school experience.
Doane Academy partners with international organizations affiliated with the Council on Standards for International Education and Travel (CSIET). Partner organizations will bring applicants through the admission process, manage logistics and secure appropriate homestay placement. While Doane Academy is open to working with new partner organizations, the following agencies are the school’s preferred partners.
- Quest International
- Heritage Student Foundation
- The Cambridge Institute
- CIEE; Ivy International
Home-stays with a host family are a crucial experience for international students. As a host family, bringing the world into your home is a unique, enriching and rewarding experience for yourselves (and your children). Doane Academy and the school’s partner organizations strive to make sure that hosting comes at no extra cost and that 24/7 emergency support is available, so that host families and international students can focus on cultural immersion.
