How To Apply

Information for International Students

All applicants who are not US citizens are considered international applicants.

Application Requirements

All Dana Hall applicants are encouraged to use our online application process through Ravenna.


English Language Requirements

Dana Hall does not offer an ESL program and therefore requires students to be highly proficient in speaking, listening, writing and reading the English language.

Testing Requirements

If you are a dual citizen, whose native language is not English, you are required to take the TOEFL exam.  

All international applicants are required to take a TOEFL exam in addition to the SSAT. Score reports for both tests must be sent directly from ETS and SSAT using our school code: 7507 for TOEFL and 2728 for SSAT. We cannot accept score reports sent by consultants, schools or families.

Dana Hall does not accept the SLEP test.

We recommend that students applying to grade 9 achieve a minimum TOEFL (iBT version) score of 80.

Application and Immigration Process

Dana Hall does not accept mid-year applications. Thus, all new students begin in the fall semester.

In order for a student to receive an I-20 Form and apply for an F-1 Visa, a student must first apply, be admitted, and enroll at Dana Hall before we will issue the I-20 form.

According to United States regulations, families must also provide the School with financial certification and proof of the applicant's citizenship before an I-20 is mailed. Dana Hall does not offer financial aid to international students. Financial aid applicants must be United States citizens paying United States taxes.

    "One of my favorite Dana Hall memories was orientation, because everything looked new. I was impressed by everything, and I got to meet many people from different places around the world."
