International Application for 2018-2019 School Year

(FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS ONLY)

About Us

Eastside Preparatory School is an academically rigorous college preparatory school located in Kirkland, Washington. We are an independent, non-sectarian Middle and Upper School that serves boys and girls in grades 5-12. We will only accept applications from international students who are seeking entry into the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade. Eastside Prep defines an international student as someone who is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, for whom English is their second language, and who has either never lived in the U.S. or who has attended school in the U.S. for less than two years. Note: a student who is entering their third year of school in the U.S., and who is no longer enrolled in an ELL/ESL curriculum, may be considered for admission without needing to submit TOEFL or TOEFL Jr. scores. This type of student would apply for admission as a domestic applicant.

To graduate and earn a diploma from EPS, international students must meet all graduation requirements as well as attend EPS for at least their 11th and 12th grade years. ELL/ESL coursework and support are not offered at EPS. Please read the following information about our mission, our students and families, our housing requirement, and our policy on English proficiency.

OUR MISSION at Eastside Preparatory School is to guide students to…
• think critically;
