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.
