The International Experience

Saint Mary’s School is pleased to welcome international students from around the world to share our beautiful campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.

As we fulfill our mission to educate young women for college and life, we recognize the need to include the global perspectives our international students bring. Just as you can learn more about the U.S. educational system and culture, our U.S. students will learn about you, your culture, and your beliefs. What you might be most surprised by is not how many differences there are, but how much all Saint Mary’s girls have in common - a love for learning, a commitment to their communities, and a desire to succeed.

Saint Mary’s recognizes that coming to a new school in a different country can present unique challenges. That's why we established support system to help you navigate your first year here and make you feel at home quickly. Our Global Ambassador Program (GAP) Prefects, are selected student leaders who live in each dormitory and are focused on the needs of our international students. They are here to answer questions, help with homesickness, and offer advice and friendship. In addition, you will have a faculty advisor with whom you will meet at least three days each week. Your advisor will guide you through your academic program at Saint Mary's, as well as oversee all aspects of your student life at Saint Mary's.
