International Admissions


University Liggett School enrolls approximately ten international students in its upper school each year. International students provide a vibrant addition to Liggett’s student body, contributing cultural diversity and helping to shape a globally-aware community. 

All international students have an orientation before the start of the school and the grade level outdoor education camps. These students become immersed in the day-to-day life at Liggett, interacting with our students and faculty, taking part in all Liggett traditions and programs, all while living with current Liggett families who serve as hosts throughout the school year. The host family experience has proven to be invaluable. As the students settle into daily life and school at Liggett they receive continual support from the admissions international student coordinators. 

With only 285 students in the upper school, international students have the opportunity to connect immediately with students and faculty. The Liggett Approach facilitates collaborative learning, which encourages active and engaged participation. 


International students are deeply involved in the school by participating in extra-curricular activities, from athletic teams to drama and arts programs to the school’s competitive robotics team.

International students at Liggett will experience the culture and lifestyle of the Detroit metro area through school-sponsored events, which may include trips to professional sports games; trips to local colleges and universities; authentic restaurant outings; and various other planned events. 

Our international students leave Liggett with a deep understanding of and appreciation for American culture and education, while being fully prepared for a highly selective American college or university.

In turn, Liggett students, faculty, and host families are enriched by the opportunity to learn from and interact with our international students on a daily basis.
