At The Banff School we will consider applications submitted throughout the year. When space is limited, however, we will give priority to early applicants. Applications and enrollment are handled online through a parent portal that will assist you through the process with helpful checklists and progress status updates.


We are also authorized to arrange I-20 Visas for International Students. As a college preparatory school we are ideally positioned to offer a first class education to those international students wishing to continue on to a college or university here in the United States. International students are also invited to take summer courses from The Banff School online in their home countries in preparation for attending an American school in the future.
