International Students

Bishop Verot Catholic High School is pleased to welcome students from other countries to join the Verot family. Students are welcome to join us for one academic semester, year, or for all four years. 

Bishop Verot does not assist with securing housing, and therefore requires all applicants work with an agency throughout the application process and for the entire length of their stay. Exceptions may be made for families who have secured housing with a local family member.
