Every year, Madeira welcomes students from all around the world to our campus. We also have a postgraduate program which offers international students a unique gap year experience in Washington, D.C. Below is information and requirement specifically for international applicants.
The International Student Application Process
The SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test) is required of all students applying to Madeira. If English is not your first language, you will be required to take both the SSAT and TOEFL or TOEFL Junior.
Students are encouraged to register for the earliest test dates possible. Madeira must receive test scores directly from the testing agency.
SSAT test code: 4768
TOEFL and TOEFL Junior test code: 8029
Madeira encourages every candidate for admission to visit our beautiful campus and participate in an interview, class visit and tour of the campus. If you cannot visit in person, we will schedule a Skype or telephone interview once all other application requirements have been met.
Deadlines and Fees
Applications and all supporting documents must be received or postmarked by January 15. Applications received after January 15 will be considered on a space-available basis. A nonrefundable application fee of $125 for international students is required. If an application is submitted electronically via fax, the application fee should be mailed within 48 hours after submission. In addition, application fees may be wired to the School.
