International Students

Willows Academy offers a unique experience to immerse students from all over the world in a rigorous academic program and vibrant social environment. Our mission is to educate the whole person and help our students become strong, confident and competent women that will make a difference in the world. We invite students from other countries to partake in this one-of-a-kind experience and better prepare themselves for college and beyond. We understand the challenges of living abroad, so we have designed a program that will support our international students in every way.

The three key components of our program are:

  1. Academics
  2. Family Life
  3. Social Environment

Program Options & Cost

Our three different programs offer the students the opportunity to attend Willows and stay with Willows host families for varying lengths of time during the Fall or Spring Semesters. No matter the program, the students will attend all core classes, as well as different electives depending on the grade level in which they are placed. In all three programs, students will have days set aside for excursions around the Chicagoland area.
