Bishop Maginn High School

International Student Information

Bishop Maginn High School welcomes international students to join our community. We are one of the few local schools approved to admit international students and issue I-20 forms to facilitate the visa process.

Admissions Criteria

A well-qualified international applicant has a strong academic record and sufficient English language proficiency to perform well in a challenging college preparatory environment.

English Language Policy and Supports

Entering students are expected to have achieved a SLEP score above 60 or provide other evidence that their English is at that level.  An interview (in person, on line or by telephone) is part of the application process.

Teachers at Bishop Maginn High School work closely with international students who receive additional language support, including:

  • Language and Writing Supports help students with English conversation and in all their subjects including Science, English, Social Studies, and Religion.
  • International students have special opportunities to meet with teachers and administrators informally, ask questions and advance their English language skills.
  • Students who need additional specialized support will be referred to BMHS tutors at no additional cost.
