International Students

Welcome International Students!

Thank you for considering Archbishop John Carroll High School for your education in the United States.  Archbishop Carroll High School is a home away from home for international students.  Our 60-acre campus located in Radnor, PA, is an ideal location for international students.  Situated on the prestigious Main Line and in the suburbs of Philadelphia, we are just minutes from Philadelphia and all the attractions a major city has to offer.  We are a 30-minute drive from the Philadelphia International Airport. New York City and Washington, DC are easily accessible by train.

Established in 1967, Archbishop Carroll High School offers a rigorous, student-centered academic program and diverse student population.  Each year, Archbishop Carroll High School admits a limited number of qualified international students in grades 9 through 11.  To be considered for admissions, students must have a successful academic record and demonstrate strong English language skills in listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

International students can apply directly to Archbishop Carroll High School.  However, to be considered for admission, all international students must be working with an international education homestay agency or live with a relative.
