NYA-Chinese-Dancers-400x275Welcome Home!

North Yarmouth Academy enjoys a long tradition of welcoming international students to the community.  Most of our international students live with host families arranged by NYA or other independent organizations.  In recent years, students from China, Sweden, India, Costa Rica and Spain have chosen to study at NYA.

Application Steps

  1. Submit a complete application by the February 1 priority admission deadline. Applications will be reviewed after February 1, as space allows.  You may submit the NYA application through TADS or the SSAT Standard Application On-line.  Application requirements are:
    • $50 application fee
    • Parent Questionnaire
    • Student Questionnaire
    • Current grades and official transcript sent directly from your current school
    • Current English teacher recommendation
    • Current math teacher recommendation
    • Interview
    • TOEFL scores
  2. An on-campus interview is preferred, but when a visit isn’t an option, a video Skype interview will be conducted.
  3. In addition to the application, international students must submit TOEFL scores to complete their application. You may also submit SSAT scores, but these are not required.  NYA’s TOEFL code is 3304 and SSAT code is 5422.

Tuition and Fees

International Tuition: $37,500
Health Insurance: $1,150 (estimate)
Homestay: $9,750 (if applicable)

I-20 Procedures
NYA is able to issue I-20 forms to assist with visa applications.  The following must be provided in order for NYA to process an I-20:

  1. Signed Enrollment Agreement
  2. Non-refundable $1,500 enrollment deposit
  3. Copy of passport
  4. Proof of tuition funds


While an I-20 will be issued after the above steps are taken, an international student may not start school until the balance is paid in full.

For students requiring assistance in finding a host family, NYA can help.  Once enrollment is complete (signed enrollment agreement and deposit) you and your family will be connected with our International Student Coordinator.
