Applying as an International Student

International Student Enrollment Process 2025-2026


All application materials are due before February 1st, 2025, for first-round admission decisions for September 2026. Late applications are reviewed as space allows.

Language Proficiency:

Our rigorous program does not offer ESL support. English proficiency demonstrated through the Test of English as a Foreign Language, also known as TOEFL, is required for all applicants.

Enrollment and Financial Responsibility:

Accepted students must wire full tuition and activity fees before receiving an Enrollment contract. The signed contract from the financially responsible individual(s) initiates the I-20 process. No Financial Aid is available for international students.


Wheeler requires a family member to live with the student, as we are not a boarding school. Address verification will be periodically requested.
