Saint John’s Catholic Prep community represents students of different cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. We believe a diverse community contributes to an enriching experience of different perspectives, customs and traditions. An important part of our students’ global experience is the admission of well-qualified international students. International applicants must meet the international admission standards and demonstrating particularly adequate proficiency via interview in the English language. International students are required to submit the same materials as domestic students. To gain acceptance, international applicants must successfully complete all stages of the highly selective admissions process.
Saint John’s Catholic Prep will only consider international applicants who require an F-1 visa in grades 9 through 11. Grade 12 admission is only based on extenuating circumstances.
Saint John’s Catholic Prep is unable to work with international students independent of our partner Mrs. Young Lee, international coordinator for SJCP.
Our International Students take trips to visit places in and around the Frederick – Baltimore – Washington DC area. Some of the locations they have traveled to in the past are: American University, Georgetown University, Smithsonian's National Zoo, Frederick Downtown Walking Tour, Schifferstadt Architectural Museum, National Museum of Civil War Medicine, Walkersville Southern Railroad, Catoctin Mountain Park, Cunningham Falls Park, South Mountain Creamery, National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, Chinatown, Clarksburg Premium Mall, Inner Harbor, National Aquarium, Frederick Keys Baseball, and local bookstores, coffee shops, and restaurants.
