St. Mary’s High School, a college-preparatory high school built on a foundation of the Catholic faith, welcomes qualified F-1 International students from across the globe to participate in our home-stay program. Nestled at the foot of beautiful Pikes Peak mountain in Colorado Springs, Colorado, St. Mary’s offers qualified international students a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent education while learning about life in the United States.

International students are encouraged to participate fully in the St. Mary’s experience, which includes taking part in extracurriculars and sports. In the last few years, St. Mary’s has welcomed students from Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Spain, Poland, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, France, Italy, and Germany.

St. Mary’s provides opportunities:
1) for a one or more year experience; OR
2) for enrollment with intent to graduate, fulfilling all St. Mary's graduation requirements.

  • St. Mary’s One Year Academic Program is intended for students to return to their own countries to complete their education.

  • St. Mary’s Diploma Program is open to qualifying I-20 students. This program’s intent is to prepare and place international students into the American college of their choice upon high school graduation.

  • If a student is interested in attending St. Mary's for a single semester, please contact us directly. Based on a student’s English language proficiency, we can help determine if this is possible.

All international students will be supported within the Academic Support Program as well as their regular schedule.
