Welcome International Students!

We are excited about your interest in attending South Lancaster Academy! Below are the guidelines for applying to our school. If you have any questions, contact us and we will be glad to assist you!

New International Students follow the steps below.

Step 1

Applying is easy using our Online Application. Applying online simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.

  • A non-refundable fee of $75 to complete the online application process.

  • A non-refundable administrative fee of $500 must be submitted with each application. Make payment here.

  • A declaration of finance must be submitted (included in online application)

Step 2

After submitting the application, you will be able to track online your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account. There you will be able to print the completed applications, monitor when the school receives supplemental application forms, and if necessary, reprint the supplemental forms.

Step 3

Our Admissions Committee will review your application for the following criteria:

  • Evidence of potential academic success in the school’s program based on previous records and recommendations

  • Evidence of good social adjustment, satisfactory behavior, and emotional stability

  • In addition, an interview with school administration is required as part of the application process. This process is normally done via Skype if a face-to-face meeting is not an option.

Step 4

Upon acceptance to South Lancaster Academy, an I-20 will be issued by the school.

Also, a copy of passport and visa needs to be submitted.

South Lancaster Academy does not provide any dormitories or organized home stay program, however we will assist students in trying to find a home stay family. For more information, contact our vice-principal/registrar at
