Dear Prospective Sponsor,
Thank you for your interest in the I-20 International Student program at Milpitas Christian School. The information in our application packet should answer many of your questions. You may download it by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. Please read and complete each document carefully. Your application will be considered by our International Student Admissions department after all of the completed documents have been received.
Before an international student is admitted, their English language fluency will be determined. Milpitas Christian reserves the right to require E.L.L. tutoring (English Language Learner) for any international student who is not capable of understanding and following instructions in English. The tutoring would be an additional expense to the I-20 student's family.
Because it is likely to be stressful for both the hosts and the child that is adjusting to a new home and a new culture, we encourage you to talk with us often. If there is any part of the adjustment that seems to be too stressful for the student, please let us know right away. We have learned that it is very helpful when the ‘parents’ and teachers talk with each other, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss your questions or concerns.
Please recognize that Milpitas Christian requires a strong commitment from the adult sponsor of an international student. We must have their support and cooperation to make the learning, cultural, and language experience a successful one for the student. We do charge a higher rate of tuition for International students, due to the additional time and effort required in the admissions and educational process for these individuals.
If you have questions or concerns regarding any part of the admission process or educational program, please contact us. Working together on behalf of the student will provide the greatest opportunity for a successful experience.
