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). 

Ranney School is an authorized user of the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) and is authorized to issue Form I-20s so that students may apply for a student visa to study in the United States. International students are enrolled via F-1 visas with the anticipation that they will stay at the school through high school graduation.

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. We do not offer boarding on our campus or coordinate homestay/hosting for students.

Below are details regarding the process and requirements for international student applicants.
PLEASE NOTE: Ranney School only accepts international students to start in the Fall term.  

Complete an application

Students interested in applying to Ranney School for grades 8-11 should visit the SSAT website and complete the Standard Application Online. International students interested in grades 6-7 should contact Admissions before starting the application process.

Once an application has been received, students can schedule an admission interview.  If it is not possible to visit campus, students will be required to schedule a Skype interview.

* The priority deadline for Upper School students to complete the admissions process and Panther Visit/ Skype Interview is January 15th. Students interested in applying after the January 15th priority deadline are encouraged to contact the Office of Admission to determine space availability.

Submit Your Test Scores

SSAT scores are recommended for all international students. Students may also submit PSAT or SAT/ACT scores in place of SSAT (SSAT Code: 6002).

TOEFL examination scores are required for students whom English is not their native language (scores must be no more than one year old prior to applying for admission) (TOEFL Code: B131). Ranney students typically score above 85.

Please contact the Admissions Office at admission@ranneyschool.org or phone 732.542.4777 x1109 with additional questions.
