International Admission

Every year, Madeira welcomes students from all around the world to our campus. Below is information and requirement specifically for international applicants. 


Standardized testing is required for admission to Madeira. We accept SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, or SAT scores:

Registration for the SSAT or ISEE must be done in advance, and scores must be set directly to Madeira from the testing agency. The ISEE is currently offering at-home proctored testing. For more information, please visit their website. For the PSAT or SAT, we accept a copy of the parent or guidance counselor score report. 


Qualified students from China will be invited to interview once their application (including Vericant) is complete. We will schedule a Skype, Zoom, or telephone interview. For more information, please visit our Chinese Students page.
