International Student Program

NYA Student at computer 2019- credit Brian Beard - CIPWelcome 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 Austria, Canada, China, Germany, India, Spain, and Sweden 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.  NYA uses the SSAT Standard Application On-line for international applicants.  Application requirements are submitted on-line through that application and are as follows:

  • $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
  • Demonstration of English proficiency (TOEFL scores preferred)

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 need to demonstrate English proficiency.  TOEFL scores are preferred.  SSAT scores are accepted, as well.  Contact the Admission Office with additional questions.  NYA’s SSAT code is 5422.

Homestay arranged by North Yarmouth Academy-Additional Fee

Each student is responsible for obtaining or purchasing their own books, as well as covering I-20 and visa expenses.

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

Once you have received your I-20, you must visit the Study in the States website  to ensure you’ve taken all the necessary steps to enter the USA.

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.
