Learn more about hosting a student through our partner New Oasis International

Roycemore School partners with several international agencies to provide the best opportunities and support to students from other countries who are looking for an excellent American school and cultural experience. The presence of these students has enriched our own school community in many different ways over the last few years, including organizing a fun and educational annual all-school Lunar New Year celebration!
