While Hopkins School is able to accept applications from families living outside of the United States, it is important to clarify that we are not a boarding school nor is our program geared toward students moving to the New Haven area without a parent.
International students applying for grades 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 must meet the following criteria:
1. Evidence of English proficiency as demonstrated by the TOEFL. Hopkins School does not require a minimum total score, rather students must earn the minimum score in each section:
• Reading: 25
• Listening: 21
• Speaking: 23
• Writing: 22
2. Approved living situation. Absent extenuating circumstances, at least one parent must be planning to move to the New Haven area with the student.
Answers to the most frequently asked questions surrounding international applicants are listed to the right. Please read this section carefully before contacting the Admission Office, as we will likely direct you back to this page for responses.
