La Scuola d’Italia has all the elements that lead to academic success. Our small class sizes and individualized approach to learning help students build self-confidence and realize their full potential in an environment that is both challenging and nurturing.
Choosing the right school for your child is important so we encourage you to explore the information provided on our website or contact us with any questions you have. If your children are transferring from a school outside the U.S., you can check a grade equivalents chart for an age and grade comparison by country.

Once you have decided to apply, we ask that you complete our online application form (a PDF version of the application form in English is available here); provide two letters of reference introducing the family to the school; and pay a $100 non-refundable application fee.
Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule an interview. During your visit or at another scheduled time, your child is invited to join a class of the same age group or grade for observation.
