Ranney School's International Program
International Student Admissions
Ranney School is a strategic choice for international students! With our close proximity to major cities, such as New York City and Philadelphia, our students can easily immerse themselves in American culture while experiencing a warm and welcoming community here at Ranney School, located in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. Ranney’s small class sizes and expert faculty are part of a distinctive academic community that values each child’s academic and co-curricular interests.
Ranney School's international program is vibrant and highly selective, providing a small group of international students with a unique cultural and educational experience. International students are expected to be proficient in the English language (reading, writing, speaking, listening) prior to applying. International students are accepted with the anticipation that they will stay at the school through high school graduation and have access to our personalized college counseling program.
Ranney School is an independent, day school. Some of Ranney’s international students live with their own extended family or relatives, but many others are housed through home-stay programs. All students must contract with a CSIET-approved agency to monitor home-stay placements.
