A student is considered an International Student if an I-20 is required for residency AND the student will require housing with an approved family during the school year. Students meeting these criteria will be required to participate in our International Student Program and will be able to receive all of the benefits and extra services this program offers. Prestonwood Christian Academy hosts International Students in grades 7 through 12.
Prestonwood Christian Academy may require additional application information and may have specific testing needs for students applying directly to our school. Please contact our Director of International Student Programs, Mr. Phil Armstrong, before completing our application.
All international students who are not living with their immediate family must work with one of our approved homestay partners. MIF Homestay is one of our partners that secures a safe, loving homestay experience for International students NOT using one of our full-service partners (listed below.)
Prestonwood Christian Academy currently partners with these approved agencies for Chinese students. When completing the application, please be sure to indicate Prestonwood Christian Academy as your school of choice.
