Rice’s college preparatory curriculum prepares international students for success at any American college or university. Our experienced Guidance Department supports students as they navigate the college application process, while our teachers provide a nurturing environment for international students to pursue their studies and improve their English.
Rice students can be found at school long after classes are done enjoying sports, clubs and the 85+ year tradition of Stunt Nite. Participation in extracurricular activities is highly recommended to foster the building of new friendships and a strong sense of belonging. Community service requirements and the host family experience also expose students to the American way of life beyond Rice’s walls.

Burlington is the most populous city Vermont, located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, south of the Canadian border. Downtown offers shops and restaurants, the pedestrianized Church Street Marketplace.
Just 10 minutes from downtown Burlington, you find fields and farmland and the Green Mountains for hiking and skiing. At the other side of the city you have Lake Champlain, which divides Vermont from its nearest neighbor, New York.
The Rice campus is situated in a quiet suburban neighborhood within minutes of Lake Champlain and “The Perfect Small City” – Burlington, Vermont. Opportunities to ski, boat, swim, hike, and bike abound. Students eager to explore the world-class universities found in Montreal, Boston and New York also appreciate our proximity to these great metropolitan cities.
Vermont is ranked as one of the safest states in the nation.
