International Students

VES is proud to celebrate our international student community. In the 2019-2020 school year, 20% of our students come from 15 countries outside of the United States.

In recent years, our international community has included students and faculty from Austria, the Bahamas, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, Scotland, Senegal, Serbia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Vietnam. While a few international students are here for a one-year cultural experience, most attend VES for four years as diploma candidates for graduation. 

We delight in the cultural depth you will bring to our school. As a VES student, you will be challenged by a rigorous academic program and participate in athletics and the arts. You will have the opportunity to contribute to our community in a variety of ways—in the classroom, on dorm, in clubs and leadership positions. And you will enjoy making close friendships that will last a lifetime.
