How to Apply


Personal Statement

A personal statement is a short essay of approximately 500 words to help us get to know your child. Have them tell us about why they would like to attend, what interests them about the Major and Minor/Workshop courses, and what they will contribute to the study abroad program. Let us know about their academic and extracurricular activities or interests and anything else that will help us to get to know them. We additionally request students provide their current, unweighted grade point average (GPA) as part of their personal statement.


Teacher Reference

All applicants are asked to submit the name and contact details of a teacher or counselor who can speak knowledgeably about them. For students applying for language immersion courses in France or Spain, we ask that they provide the information for their language teacher.

03 — For Immersion Courses Only

Language Writing Sample

For students electing language immersion courses in France or Spain, an additional 500-word statement in French or Spanish is additionally required. This statement should outline their interest in furthering their language skills and what they hope to gain from their Oxbridge experience.

The Teacher Recommendation form can be accessed via the student portal and should be completed by the student’s French or Spanish teacher. It asks the teacher to estimate the student’s language level.



Applications require a deposit of $1,000 US to be marked as complete. This is deducted from the total tuition upon acceptance and is refunded in full if the student is not accepted.
