International Student Program
To promote connections among cultures, Germantown Friends School welcomes students from outside the United States to apply to our International Student Program (ISP).
Because GFS is not a boarding school, we enroll only a small number of international students. If a student is accepted and enrolls with GFS, ISP will provide a homestay for that student with a family that is well-known to our community.
We offer exceptioal courses of study, strong arts and athletics programs, and a wide array of community-building activities and confidence-boosting leadership opportunities.
The International Student Program (ISP) includes:
- American family homestays
- Periodic progress reports
- One-on-one academic tutoring
- College counseling
- Medical insurance
- Cafeteria meal plans
- New student orientation week
The ISP Director and the Coordinator of International Student Life will assist students as they transition into American social and academic cultures.
