At Southampton Academy international students are not only welcomed to our campus they are made to feel part of the “Southampton Academy Family.” Our educational philosophy is that students do their best work when they are happy. We work hard to ensure that our international students do feel happy here and that they are included and integrated. We want them to participate in as many school activities as they choose. We are dedicated to providing our international students with a rigorous college preparatory education, comprehensive college counseling, and a meaningful introduction to American life.
