Bullis is not a boarding school, our international students have the wonderful
and unique opportunity of residing with host families. In most cases, host families
are current school families with children enrolled at Bullis. This host family program
helps our international students to fully immerse themselves in American
culture and family life. As a member of the host family household, each
international student is included in family meals, outings and other experiences.
Upper School requires international students to take grade level English as well
as an additional academic support class that strengthens core English skills, cultural awareness and study patterns. All other subjects
are taken on grade level. We do not offer an ESL program.
Students are involved in all areas of extra-curriculars
including athletics and arts plus many other activities. The
goal of our program is exposure, experience and immersion!
