Visiting Students

Are you currently living outside the United States and looking for an opportunity to experience life as a residential high school student in the United States?

High Mowing welcomes visiting international students throughout the school year. While we regularly welcome exchange students as well as international students who wish to complete their entire high school education with us, we also welcome international students who simply want to visit for part or all of a school year. Typically, visiting students attend High Mowing for at least one trimester.

As a visiting student, you will participate fully in the life of the school, living in the same on-campus dorms, taking the same classes as all of our students.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more or complete the inquiry form on this page to connect with our Admissions office. 

If you’re ready to begin your High Mowing journey, please complete our free online application now! When the list of application forms is displayed, choose the High School International Visiting Student option.
