A unique distinctive at Christian Heritage School is our International Homestay Program. As an international student, beginning your experience in a new country with a local host family can allow you to experience what life is really like in your host country while greatly improving your language skills. All international students are placed with approved American host families to provide complete immersion into American culture and traditions. In turn, American families have the opportunity to expose their family to new cultures and create an international network of friends.
On average, we welcome students from seven different countries each school year as part of our International Homestay Program. In recent years, we have hosted students from Australia, Austria, Croatia, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kingdom of Spain, Montenegro, Peoples Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Republic of Serbia, and Vietnam.
Through a robust international student program, we create a global learning experience for the entire student body and are equipping young people, of all nationalities, to confidently serve the one true God that created each of us with our unique attributes and cultures.
A student is considered an international student if an I-20 is required for residency AND the student will require housing with an approved Christian Heritage School family during the school year. If a student requires a visa to study in the United States, he/she must apply as an international student. There are several steps to our admission process, and families are required to complete all of the steps before they can be considered for admission.
CHS admits students regardless of race, socio-economic status, and national or ethnic origin. CHS does not discriminate on the basis of race, socio-economic status, and national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, financial assistance programs, athletic programs, and other school-administered programs. CHS reserves the right to refuse admittance to any family it believes may cause disruption to the community spirit that exists among the families currently involved at CHS.
