International Families and Out-of-Town Applicants
We look forward to working with families moving to Houston from other areas of the United States and other countries. We understand that the admission process may present some challenges given your circumstances. We encourage you to submit an application as soon as possible so that we may assist you with the admission process.
Out of town families applying for Classes 2–11 can complete the process without coming to campus. All testing can be done out of state and we can help facilitate. Additionally, interviews and parent/guardian meetings can be completed over video chat.
Out of town families applying for Kindergarten and Class 1 need to be on campus for their individual evaluation. Kindergarten evaluations will be conducted on January 18, 20 and 23, so that travel arrangements can be made. Kindergarten applicants will receive notification in mid-September of your scheduled date and time. Class 1 evaluations will be conducted December 6 (last names A-K) and 13 (last names L-Z). We require out of town families for Kindergarten and Class 1 to have the WPPSI administered by CATS. If you have questions about this, please contact Tahra Peterson at 713-850-4119.
Since the WISC must be completed by December 15, out of town families for Classes 2-4 can schedule testing in their local area.
As a day school, St. John's policy requires that students reside with a parent, stepparent, or legal guardian. We do not offer a program for international students and do not issue I-20 visas.
