International Admissions

Regina Dominican High School is nestled on 10.5 acres of property, in the highly desirable neighborhood of Wilmette, Illinois. We are ideally located in the heart of the North Shore area, just a few short miles away from beautiful Lake Michigan and the Chicago Botanic Gardens.

Each year, Regina welcomes students from all over the world and takes pride in providing the best, most inclusive learning environment that is both welcoming and challenging, offering the optimal environment for academic success.

Our rigorous college preparatory courses and enriching English Language Learners program (ELL), set the stage for students to take a wide variety of classes (over 140 course offerings & 14 Advanced Placement [AP] courses).

Over the years, we’ve had international students participate in over 26 extra-curricular clubs, compete in 12 IHSA athletic sports teams and perform on stage — enriching their high school experience and expanding their interests.

Our college counselors meet the needs of every international student, walking them through the college application process. In fact, Regina graduates are accepted to some of the most elite colleges and universities across the nation.

At Regina international students truly thrive and form lasting friendships for a lifetime.

Host Families

Our host families provide a safe, warm, family environment for our international students. Referred to as ‘Homestay’ families, they introduce students to American cultures and traditions while providing support, engaging in conversation and participating in cultural outings. Our Homestay families provide a very enriching experience for these international students.

If your family is interested in learning more about hosting one of Regina’s international students, please contact the Enrollment Office for more information.
