Springdale welcomes international students who are interested in sharing their cultural backgrounds and learning about and with other young people from around the world and the United States.
Our diversified student body includes children from a wide range of countries, including China, Japan, Spain, France, Germany, Denmark, Thailand and more. These eager-to-learn young people are eager to expand their horizons, exchange perspectives on social, community and political matters and maximize the experiential experience unique to Springdale. Each one chooses the path that’s right for them and staff and faculty enjoy watching them develop as both students and individuals.
A True Community
We provide an unparalleled level of support for all boarding students, especially those whose homes are on different continents. Both residential staff and faculty—along with the students themselves—coordinate activities in the dorm and around campus and organize/supervise regular trips to a mix of local attractions, landmarks, entertainment/sporting events, and more.
The group enjoys meals at local restaurants, shopping excursions, and extended day trips around the Baltimore-Washington D.C. corridor—and into Pennsylvania and Virginia—while also making visits to historic sites, monuments, museums, zoos, concerts, festivals, and more.
We enjoy unique access to three international airports and coordinate all arrangements for a student’s arrival from any of them. Any student choosing to fly into another airport must make his or her own arrangements for transportation to campus.
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) is the closest (55- minute drive) to Springdale, thus we recommend students fly into BWI.
Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Northern Virginia is approximately one hour and 20 minutes from campus.
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), located just outside of Washington, DC, is also about 1 hour and 20 minutes from campus.
NOTE: Students are asked to share their travel itinerary and related details with Daniele Tellish so that she can make all of the necessary arrangements.
