Families interested in full services through the International Partnership of Education Research and Communication (IPERC) should apply through them at iperc.org. Families not needing those services may apply directly to MVS by submitting the online application and other forms detailed on the Admission Process web page under items 1 and 2 - http://www.mvschool.com/admissions-welcome/admission-process.
Once the application and forms are received, MVS staff will interview the student using a video program such as Skype. The student should be prepared to answer all questions in English, write an essay during the interview, and read an English passage. Parents are usually present with the student for this interview.

Prospective Host Families
MVS enrolls students from around the world every year who need host families. Students stay with their host families during the school year (mid-August through early June), returning home during winter break. We hope that students will remain with the same family during their entire career at MVS, but we ask host families to commit to at least one year at a time.
If you are interested, please contact IPERC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Host families chosen by the international program team provide room and board, which includes at least two meals a day during the week (three on weekends), each student's own bedroom, and transportation to and from school and activities.
