Does Fontbonne provide housing for international students? 

No. Fontbonne is a day school and, therefore, does not provide housing for students. All international students work with their placement agency or their legal guardian in the United States (documentation required) to find appropriate housing.

Are there extended school hours? 

The Fontbonne cafeteria is open from 6:30am until 6:00pm and proctored by adults. This enables all our students to arrive early or to stay after school for extracurricular activities, homework and study in a safe environment.

Do you have to be Catholic to apply/enroll?

No. Fontbonne is open to young women of all backgrounds and cultures. Our community is richer for the breadth of the experience our students bring.
