Brownell Talbot understands the value of a diverse student body, and each year welcomes a select group of international students to join the BT community. The number of international students enrolled each year is limited to ensure visiting students receive the benefits of cultural integration and English language immersion.
BT seeks international students who are:
- Applying for grades 7-11.
- Academically motivated and successful.
- Emotionally and socially mature.
- Interested in joining clubs and activities.
- Respectful of world cultures and values.
Your Home Away From Home
Host families are typically BT families, faculty and staff, or families with close ties to the BT community. Brownell Talbot conducts background checks on potential host parents and carefully considers the international student’s personality and preferences and how they align with the host family through the matching process.
Host families provide a safe, supportive, and loving home for the academic year as international students adjust to a new culture, a second language, and an unfamiliar school. Host parents welcome the student as a member of the family and encourage them to participate in all aspects of family life. Most importantly, a home environment immerses visiting students in conversational English and ensures an enriching cultural experience.
