Your future begins today

Enroll before our fall application deadline on November 30th, 2020 to secure your place at EF Academy for the 2021/2022 school year, and take the first step towards transforming your high school education.

Embarking on the journey to study abroad in high school is a big step, and big steps take preparation. That’s why at EF Academy we support families on every step of their journey with us – even before setting foot on campus. From the moment you are enrolled, you will be invited to participate in a series of exclusive webinars and workshops for new students and parents.


Learn all you need to know to hit the ground running next school year and feel confident to start your international education at EF Academy. The sooner you are enrolled, the more activities will be available to you and your family.

Enroll by November 30th and be invited to an online meeting with EF Academy New York’s Director of Student Support, Michelle Ferrera. In our exclusive December seminar, families will hear about EF Academy’s support system in detail from our Director of Student Support herself, understand the roles of Pathway Managers, University Advisors and other support staff providing guidance and care for students, and get answers to all of their questions about student support on campus.
