  • Applicants for middle school ELI must have at least 2 years of English in their home schools.
  • Applicants for high school ELI must have at least 3 years of English in their home schools.

Because there is usually a delay of 2-3 months in the collection of foreign drafts, we require tuition payments in US dollars. They must be drawn on a US bank or wire transferred to Summer Programs.
