Welcome to Furtah Preparatory School! At FPS, we value the education of our students, not only in the classroom, but also in life. We believe that exposure to other cultures and languages is an inherent part of learning to be a world-class citizen, and we welcome the opportunity to allow students from all parts of the world to study together. Our international students are highly involved in our academic programs, sports, and fine arts alike. We welcome them as a part of our family community.

Over the years, our international population has included students from Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, El Salvador, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Macedonia, Mexico, Montenegro, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and Vietnam.

Our International Student Handbook has all the information necessary for your understanding of being an international student at FPS.  Please remember that you must get any travel approved ahead of time by Mrs. Galloway (in person or via email), and it may also require approval by the principal and athletic director.  (This includes during school breaks.)

If you are interested in joining FPS as an international student, please visit our international admissions page

Natural families are responsible for all medical fees associated with the student's needs. If you are in need of health insurance, we can recommend the following:
