International Students

A map of the world for international students with Idaho outlined

Sun Valley Community School is a small school with a global perspective. Since the launch of our Residential Program in 2011, our school has welcomed students from sixteen different countries, and we look forward to continuing our connection with international families.

International students from all over the world have joined our boarding school and made Sun Valley their home. Several student-athletes have been admitted for a single academic year abroad, while some have stayed for all four years of high school. Our international students have particularly enjoyed our Outdoor Program and the experience of living in our friendly Idaho community.

International students who join our boarding program make meaningful connections with their fellow students, with faculty and staff, and with local families through our host family program, which links each international student with a family committed to offering personal support and opportunities to explore the area throughout the year.
