Cheshire Academy provides an in-depth support system for parents, consultants, and students from overseas.

Cheshire Academy is home to students from more than 35 different countries, many of whom chose Cheshire Academy because of its reputation as one of the best private schools in the USA. Students from around the world have attended the Academy since 1850, making the New England boarding school one of the first to enroll international students.
Cheshire Academy offers a unique support system for international students that includes ESL, ELL, and TOEFL prep, individualized academic assistance through the Roxbury Academic Support Program, and the option to participate in the IB Program and earn an International Baccalaureate Diploma.
With guidance from academic advisors and the International Student Office, families from abroad have an in-depth support system that works to communicate with consultants, parents, and students, providing a true student-centered learning and living experience.
Once you are accepted and enrolled at Cheshire Academy the International Office will issue an I-20 so that you can obtain your student Visa in time for travel to the United States. You may contact the Office of Community Life with questions. 

Once you've enrolled in the Academy and received your MyCheshire login credentials, you may navigate to the International Students and Families portal page.

Students applying from Mainland China

In order to better facilitate the interview process for students living and studying in Mainland China, Cheshire Academy has partnered with Vericant. Any student from Mainland China who would like to visit and apply to Cheshire Academy is required to first complete an interview and short writing exercise with Vericant, who will post interviews for our admission team to review. Once the office of admissions has reviewed the Vericant interview videos, we will notify a group of students who will be invited to interview with a Cheshire Academy Admission Officer. The Vericant interview will give you an excellent opportunity to showcase your personality and skills to our admissions team and is a required component of the completed application for all applicants from China. To learn more about Vericant and to schedule an interview, please visit Vericant's Website.
