Students are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. Students are rated on the following criteria:
- transcripts must show above average academic ability
- students must be responsible, honest, cooperative, demonstrate good character, display character and citizenship, and be respectful of others
- students must be self-motivated, responsible for their own success, and able to organize personal time
- applications must be complete and include the main information form, official English transcripts from the last three years, letters of recommendation, and a non-refundable $100 fee (see application checklist for more details).
Because admission into St. Croix’s international program is competitive, not all qualified applicants will be accepted.
Applicants have a stronger application if they are entering St. Croix at an earlier grade level and are committed to earning a diploma from St. Croix High School. The longer a student is in the program, the greater the success rate of that individual student.
Stronger applicants are able to demonstrate proficiency in English. The TOEFL test is not required. The SLEP test is strongly encouraged but because not all applicants have access to the test, applicants may meet the English proficiency level via a phone/personal interview with admissions staff or by showing a strong academic history of English.
