International Students

Welcome to Baker!

Ben Arrivata ·환영·Willkommen · Weigekomen · 欢迎 ·Witam · Bienvenida

Thank you for your interest in Baker, an independent school on Chicago’s north shore that is nationally recognized for excellence in progressive education. Founded in 1918, we provide domestic and international students with a well-rounded education that well prepares our graduates for high school – and life.

Creating and promoting diversity is an integral and essential element of our educational program. Families from international backgrounds add to the fabric of our community and find a friendly and inclusive home in Baker. Over the past several years, our enrollment from international students has steadily grown as we have welcomed learners and their parents from countries including Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Korea, Poland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In addition to families who live internationally, about 28% of our students speak a language other than English at home.
