For an application to be reviewed, international students must submit TOEFL or TOEFL Jr. results. (If a TOEFL test cannot be administered, we may accept IELTS or iTEP results).
Our TOEFL code is 3250. We will also administer the TOEFL Jr. once the student begins attending. International students at Orinda Academy need to demonstrate proficiency in English to be accepted into the program. Additionally, they need to make gains each year to advance to the next grade level.
For the 2017–18 School Year, the following minimum TOEFL scores (PBT and iBT), IELTS and iTEP will be used to determine eligibility:
If a student is unable to take one of the tests above, he/she should submit any other test scores that are available (Cambridge CEFR, etc.). In such a case, it may not be possible to guarantee grade placement until the student arrives and takes a placement test administered by Orinda Academy.
