International Student English Program

For students who are fluent in English but for whom English has not been the primary language of instruction, Madeira offers the International Student English program. The program consists of two years of classes that develop the speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills needed to excel in our rigorous college preparatory program. 

As participants in this program, international students receive an extra time accommodation in history and English classes during all their years at Madeira.


Placement in the International Student English program is part of the admission decision, and the enrollment contract stipulates enrollment in the program.
