Community School of Naples allows students to engage fully in the world around them with purpose by experiencing culture first-hand. Combining CSN’s environment with international influences allows enrichment in the classroom and beyond. Through this rich landscape of culture, students gain a better appreciation and understanding of the world around them and learn to lead across borders.

CSN does not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. All instruction and assessment is conducted in English. All international applicants must demonstrate proficiency in both oral and written English.

International students seeking a CSN diploma who plan to apply to an American university or college are required to take the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) as well as the TOEFL.
