Is EF Academy Pasadena right for you? Let’s talk about your goals in life—not just your grades and test scores. It’s important for us to get to know you as a person.

Is EF Academy right for you?

To ensure your success at EF Academy, check out the following pre-requisites.

Ages 13 - 17

We expect students to have completed the grade requirements that correspond to their age prior to the start of their program at EF Academy.

English is the language used in all our programs. While we don’t expect fluency, we do require grade and program appropriate level English that continues to develop from when you join EF Academy to when you graduate.

For international students, as part of the application process, we test your current English proficiency on listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills and conduct a personal interview.  This helps us ensure all students join the right track for success.

Need help with your English?  If you are going into the 9th or 10th grade, we provide the EF Academy Preparation Program which helps accelerate your English to the level you need to successfully complete your diploma program.
