The Stony Brook School is exceptionally diverse. Home to students from 20 different countries and 11 different states and territories, we take pride in teaching our students to embrace working with and learning from those who come from different backgrounds and bring different perspectives. Come and see what it means for each student to become a global citizen.

International Student Enrollment Policy

In its unique standing as a New York metropolitan boarding and day school, SBS prioritizes fostering a strong sense of community throughout our student body. In order to preserve its integrity, the Admissions Office has instituted the following policy effective immediately: 

Any applicant who is not a United States citizen and does not hold a valid US passport will be required to attend the Stony Brook School as a 7-day boarder.

In addition to the application materials, all students whose first language is not English will be required an English language proficiency exam. Typically, applicants take the TOEFL iBT exam. Scores of past tests are valid if taken within one academic year of the application deadline; however, we do not use or accept TOEFL's MyBest score to evaluate an applicant. Please send all score reports to or release them through ETS using school code 8083.
