International Admission

International Students must be able to complete school work in English and are only accepted for admission to the 7th and 8th grades.  The Diocese of Arlington endeavors to remain certified by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to admit F-1 Non-Immigrant students. The school, therefore, adheres to the following policies for enrolling non-U.S. persons:

  1. Once a foreign student is determined to meet the school’s requirements for admission, the family must contact the Office of Catholic Schools or another “designated official” within the school to process the Immigration and Naturalization Service I-20 form for admission and stay in the United States as an F-1 student.
  2. Any student applicant whose passport, United Nations travel document, or other Immigration and Naturalization documents indicate that he or she is a refugee, asylee, parolee, lawful non-immigrant, or permanent resident may be admitted to the school under normal requirements for admission.
  3. Foreign students who enroll in the school for the first time must provide documentation they are free from communicable tuberculosis.
  4. Foreign students enrolling in a school in the Diocese must show their Visa.
  5. In addition to a Visa, any foreign student seeking temporary enrollment must provide the following documentation:
    1. I-20 Form (if applicable)
    2. Diocesan Emergency Care Form
    3. State Immunization Form
