Our Mission

EF Academy International Boarding Schools opens a world of opportunities for high school students by providing them with a superior education abroad, thorough preparation for university and a future that knows no borders.

EF Academy is everything you would expect from a world-class boarding school – modern facilities, experienced teachers and internationally recognized academic programs. But what truly sets us apart is our mission to provide you with a superior education that empowers you to excel.  

As a student at one of our international boarding schools in New York, Pasadena, Torbay or Oxford, you will grow as a person and develop the skills necessary for success in the globalized 21st century. Studying abroad with classmates from 75 countries will open your eyes to the cultures around you. As you explore different ideas and perspectives in class and during co-curricular activities, you will find that your worldview will expand and that you will become an independent, confident global citizen. 

The international experience, thorough university preparation and rewarding academic journey you will find at our private high school will open your mind, and your world.
