One of Rocky Hill Country Day School’s strengths is our international student program. For over 2 decades, the School has hosted international students from a wide range of countries. Some students come for just one year and others stay for longer, graduating with diplomas and admission to many of the top colleges and universities in the United States.

Our size affords international students the opportunity to connect immediately with students and faculty, allows them to interact in small learning groups, and provides them with extra-curricular activities that they may not get at a larger school. The Harkness® method of discussion-based learning gives our international students ample opportunities to improve not only their English literacy but also their spoken fluency.

Some of our international students live with Rocky Hill Country Day families. This experience has proven to be invaluable to our international program, allowing students and families to create bonds that last a lifetime. Through one of our partner agencies, some international students choose to live in a living and learning facility that offers a dorm experience. Both opportunities provide fantastic support and resources for our students.

For any questions regarding the International Program please contact Sarah Flynn at 01-401-884-9070 Ext. 107.

TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR

Rocky Hill Country Day School hosts international students for their 4-year high school experience, culminating in graduation and admission to top colleges and universities in the United States. 

As is the case for all of our students, our intentionally small size affords international students the opportunity to connect immediately with students and faculty, allows each student a ‘front seat’ at the Harkness table, and provides opportunities in leadership and athletics that they may not get at a larger school. Additionally, our top quality visual arts department immerses students in a variety of mediums.  We invite you to check out these student experiences!
