How to Apply

Discover your potential as a Cotter student

Our residential program invites students in grades 7-12 from around the globe to learn and grow at Cotter Schools. All students can expect to feel supported by their teachers, fellow students and staff, and we embrace diversity and the many cultures present in our schools. 

In fall 2021, a new dorm and cafeteria opened for boarding students. The International House is a three story, air-conditioned building with a dedicated residential life team that includes adult staff members who live in the dormitory to provide a safe and secure living environment. Residential staff serve as mentors to support a student’s academic, social, emotional and spiritual growth.

All educational agents and advisors should contact Mr. Erik Christenson
