CDH International Student Program

Cretin-Derham Hall welcomes students from around the world to our community.  In the past few years we have welcomed students from China, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Brazil and the Ukraine. Our international students live with host families or in a nearby boarding center and participate fully in the life of our school, supported by our admissions department along with school counselors and faculty.

Information For International Students

Cretin-Derham Hall offers two types of opportunities: a year-long or partial exchange for students who wish to share an American independent school experience but intend to return to their home country for continued education; or, full matriculation into the Cretin-Derham Hall program with the intent of receiving a Cretin-Derham Hall diploma. Standards for acceptance may vary slightly due to the nature of our degree-granting requirements.

Cretin-Derham Hall is accepting applications for international students. Our school works with Amerigo Education exclusively to bring international applicants from around the world to our campus.

Amerigo Education offers comprehensive international student recruitment solutions to elite schools in the U.S., and functions as a partner to Cretin-Derham Hall’s international student admissions department, assisting us in prescreening and evaluating prospective international applicants. Amerigo Education will collect and validate application documents and respond to inquiries from international students.

For more information about how to apply as an international student, please contact Amerigo Education:  Ms. Anna Katten.
