International Students

Welcome all international students!

Wooster School is pleased to welcome international students to northern Fairfield County, Connecticut. Moving from one culture to another involves change, from food to fashions, to study and sports. We hope to make the transition as smooth as possible, and we welcome the learning and growth that international students bring to our community.

In the 2018-19 School Year, Wooster's student 7th-12th grade population included 34 students from China, with 10 members of the Class of 2019. They are attending the following colleges and universities:

  • Bentley University
  • Boston University
  • Colby College
  • Lafayette College
  • New York University
  • Rhode Island School of Design
  • Smith College
  • University of California, Santa Barbara
  • University of Rochester
  • Wake Forest University

Watch the short video below as Wooster School international students talk to their family and friends back home about their experience at Wooster.

Before you apply

Wooster School strongly encourages entry into the 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade for international students. Exceptions are made on occasion for well qualified students interested in other grades. Please inquire for more information.

Wooster School requires all international students to take our College Preparatory Language Course (also referred to as ESL). It is our commitment to you that you will leave with a higher level of mastery of your English skills than when you arrived at Wooster School.

Applicants from China

International students coming from China live with a host family, and therefore must work with an agency to handle placement. Wooster's current agency partners are: The Cambridge Network, Apex International Education Partners (AIEP), and Northeast Student Consulting (NESC). We have partnered with these organizations to help Chinese students through the admissions process and home/school placement, and to assist our students and families throughout the duration of their time here. To submit an application or if you have any questions, please contact our consultants at The Cambridge Network at admissions@thecambridgenetwork.com, AIEP at info@aiepusa.com, or NESC at info@nescus.com.

Students coming from China are also required to provide a TOEFL or TOEFL Jr. score. Wooster's required scores are:

  • For 7th/8th graders: 70 TOEFL/770 TOEFL Jr.
  • For 9th graders: 80 TOEFL/825 TOEFL Jr.
  • For 10th graders: 85 TOEFL/850 TOEFL Jr.
  • For 11th graders: 90 TOEFL
