Valuing diversity

Our International Population

We host a diverse international population in our High School, which includes visiting students on language-based exchanges from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Spain, and other Spanish-speaking countries, as well as international students from countries around the world, including Burundi, Canada, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, the People’s Republic of China, and Switzerland.

Exchange and Visiting Student Program

Green Meadow has a worldwide reputation for excellence in Waldorf Education; we welcome inquiries about our language-based Exchange Program

Since our Exchange Program often has more inquiries than we can fill, and attracts interest from students who speak languages other than Spanish, we offer a Visiting Student Program where Waldorf students may attend Green Meadow by boarding with a Green Meadow host family for a semester-long learning experience. Both the Exchange Program and the Visiting Student Program enrich our entire school community. 

All visiting students will need to apply for an F-1 student visa before entering Green Meadow. 

Green Meadow is registered with SEVIS, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, and is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant students.


Full-Time Enrollment for International Students

Green Meadow Waldorf School welcomes applications from High School students across the globe.

Here are the steps in the application process:

  1. Application: Click on the link here to create an account on our database. Be sure to select the correct school year for which you are applying.
  2. Records: Send in a copy of your child’s class reports/transcripts (with translation) plus two letters of recommendation.
  3. Classroom Visit and Interview: Once an application file is reviewed and approved, we would look to schedule a classroom visit and interview, hopefully to coincide with a planned visit to the US. In-person visits are always ideal. But if it’s not possible, we could proceed with an online interview. From there, the school will issue an admissions decision. 

All international students will need to apply for an F-1 student visa before entering Green Meadow. 

Green Meadow is registered with SEVIS, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, and is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant students.


Home-Based Boarding

Our International, Visiting, and Exchange students become immersed in the English language and American culture by boarding in the home of a host family within our school community (often a faculty member or family of a current student). International House (pictured below) is an option as well. Students are well cared for, have a home away from home, and have a deeper cultural experience.

Flexible home-based boarding can also be arranged for any domestic student who would like to enroll at our school but lives too far to commute.
