International Students

Charles Wright welcomes students from around the world to our beautiful campus in the Pacific Northwest. We have recently enrolled students from China, Lithuania, Sweden, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Malaysia. We provide home stays where students live with a host family arranged by Charles Wright. Hosts provide students with accommodations, transportation and meals, and also guidance, friendship, and assistance during the school year. International Students participate in a four-day orientation at Charles Wright prior to the start of the academic year and, our Director of International Programs, Ann Vogel provides support throughout their time here.

This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. In addition to an online application for admission, international students must submit a TOEFL score, conduct a Skype interview with one of our admissions staff, and submit copies of a passport and bank-verified financial statement. Students from China: Please follow the application instructions below.

Before You Apply

Charles Wright Academy strongly encourages entry into the 9th or 10th grade for international students. Exceptions are made on occasion for well-qualified students interested in other grades. Although most students apply to enroll in the fall trimester, we consider mid-year enrollments (typically November and March) on a space-available basis. Please inquire for more information.
