Foreign Exchange Students 

We welcome non-diploma–seeking foreign exchange students who wish to have an educational and cultural experience at Notre Dame Preparatory School.  


  • A student born outside the United States under the age of 18 who wishes to attend school at Notre Dame for a minimum of four academic weeks to a maximum of one academic year.  

  • Students must have pre-arranged housing, as well as transportation to and from school daily. (Foreign exchange students are eligible to ride a Notre Dame bus to and from school at the established rate.) 


  • Submit academic records from the last two years. 

  • Submit student evaluations from current teachers 

  • Submit score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) taken within two years of the application submission date.  

Once received, Notre Dame will evaluate all materials and determine whether to invite the student to complete the application process, including an online application and Skype interview. 

Upon acceptance, students: 

  • Will be required to pay full tuition based on the amount of time he/she will attend Notre Dame 

  • Will receive no credit for the courses taken while enrolled (though, upon request, Notre Dame will furnish a letter describing the courses taken) 

  • Will not be eligible to receive student support services, such as counseling (career, college, pastoral, or personal), tutoring, library services, and financial aid. 

Please contact Ms. Kala Parker at for more information. 

Notre Dame reserves the right to definitely or indefinitely suspend the enrollment of a foreign exchange student who exhibits behavior out of line with our school mission.
