Boarding at Bement: International

Our international students come from all over the world and share our school with each other and our American boarding and day students. Each international boarding student will have a roommate from a different culture who speaks a different language. This ensures English is the common language and our international students' skills improve steadily through the year. English Language Learning (ELL) classes are available for students who need English language support. A student’s English ability will determine their course placement. We pride ourselves on how well our international students learn English, both in the classroom, on the athletic fields, on the stage, and at home in the dorms. Their education continues after classes are over and they benefit from each other and the other members of our Bement community.

We are very proud of our international students and feel lucky to have such a group with us each year. They work hard and learn a great deal while they share their experiences with us. They are also very successful after they graduate from Bement. Gaining acceptance to top secondary schools, our international students are wonderful ambassadors for Bement and their families. Recent international graduates have continued on to Deerfield, Phillips Exeter, Phillips Andover, St. Paul's, St. George's, Brooks, Lawrenceville, Milton, Pomfret, Portsmouth Abbey, Taft, Choate Rosemary Hall, Northfield Mount Hermon, Miss Porter's School, Williston, Mercersburg, Proctor, Miss Hall's School, Loomis Chaffee, Blair Academy, Westminster, Suffield, and Brewster Academy.

Study in the States is a resource for all international students who do not hold a U.S. Passport.  You can find information about studying in the U.S. and information on student visas.
