Give your child a competitive advantage for higher education with a Fulton School ESL High School Education.

The Fulton School at St. Albans offers international students a tremendous opportunity to participate in a culturally rich, immersive education through our International Student ESL “English as a Second Language” program. 

Our academic program combines learning English with a true rigorous academic curriculum.  Not only do our students become fluent in English during their middle and high school years, but they are exposed to and taught at the same academic level as their domestic peers.

Starting an ESL program prior to the college years gives your child a competitive advantage when considering higher education in the United States.  By introducing English alongside a rigorous academic curriculum at an earlier age, students get the competitive advantage they need to be successful and happy in a higher education environment.

The Fulton School at St. Albans' ESL program accepts students from middle to 
high school through senior year (7th grade through 12th grade).  Admission is granted based on academic strength, financial stability, and a satisfactory level of proficiency in English.  Throughout these pages you'll find information on the requirements and benefits of our English as a Second Language program.
