International Students

In the Bullis Admission Office we strive for one thing in working with all of our prospective families: a personal connection with the applying student and a partnership with parents. Our process focuses on the whole student, not just test scores or transcripts. We feel that the personal relationships that we build throughout the admission process are the beginning of forging community ties that continue once you are officially a member of the Bullis family. You won’t be a number here, but a familiar face who will always be greeted by a warm smile.

International students follow all of the same application guidelines as our local applicants. We welcome visits to the Bullis campus—however, please call for an appointment at least 48 hours in advance of your arrival so that we may best accommodate your request.

If you would like more information after reviewing the application details, please do not hesitate to contact the Admission Office.

We look forward to learning more about you during the admission process!
