How to Apply to Harker
Select the division you're applying for to view the steps of the application process and the required application forms.
International students applying to The Harker School must meet the same admission standards as domestic students, and successfully complete all stages of the highly selective admission process. We do not have a separate pool for international applicants. Harker has a very rigorous academic program, and all students must be fluent in reading, writing and speaking English. Unless a student has been attending a school where their courses are taught in English, it is unlikely that they would qualify.
While Harker does not offer ESL curriculum during the regular school year, we do offer a robust English Language Institute in the summer. For more information, visit our ELI website or contact ELI@harker.org.
We expect that the majority of places for fall will be filled by candidates who make the January deadlines and regular acceptance announcement in March. We may have the opportunity to extend offers of admission to a few individuals who complete their files after the regular deadline. These acceptance decisions will be made on a rolling basis and will depend on available space. Please contact us if you have any questions.
