Boarding Program

Applying for a United States Student Visa
In order for an international student (defined as any student holding a foreign passport) to enroll at a school in the United States, they must obtain an F-1 (or student) visa. The information on this Web site explains the process of applying for a student visa and provides some helpful hints. U.S. embassies and consulates work from the same set of rules, which are then adapted to their host countries. Therefore you should inquire in advance about individual policies.

TOEFL – The Test of English as a Foreign Language
Lee Academy is a fully accredited TOEFL exam site, one of only eight in the entire State of Maine. The TOEFL test gives students more choices about where they can study, and is accepted by more institutions than any other English-language test in the world — including top colleges and universities worldwide.
