International Students

Bishop Ready High School values, encourages, and accepts cultural diversity and welcomes students regardless of ethnicity, religion, or national origin. Our student body encompasses students from different walks of life; their commonality is the desire for a first-rate education in an environment that challenges, nourishes, and prepares them for continuing their education on the university level and dealing with the problems and opportunities that await them.

Bishop Ready accepts international students who are preparing to attend competitive American colleges and universities and who wish to receive an American high school diploma. Our courses in ACT and SAT preparation are especially helpful for these students.
