International Students

Welcome to Concordia Christian Academy!


Concordia Christian Academy welcomes students from around the world into our community. We believe international students foster an environment of global diversity within our school and build relationships lasting a lifetime. 

CCA is a fully accredited, co-educational, college preparatory school offering international students the opportunity to experience American education at its best. CCA’s most successful international students have a focused desire for academics and a passion to experience American culture. Our international community has a rigorous academic schedule, but we encourage participation in extracurricular activities including athletics, music, and the arts.

English proficiency is required for a student's success at Concordia. Students are required to have a Skype interview with the Admissions Director prior to acceptance. CCA is a SEVIS approved school. For accepted students, we issue F-1 visas intended for students with plans to study for at least one full year at CCA. Some semester options may be available.

International Chinese students can choose to apply independently or connect with one of CCA’s partnering programs. When applying independently, the student is responsible for securing their host family. Chinese students have the option to enroll through the Ameri-Student or ThreeW agencies. CCA also partners with WEP-USA for Italian and Belgium students interested in applying.

Concordia Christian Academy partners with these agencies to provide comprehensive international student enrollment management to students from these countries. Together, we provide unparalleled support and service to our international students, from general admissions to post-arrival and beyond.

All independent international students apply to CCA via our online partner for admissions, TADS. Our partners at TADS have created a streamlined admissions and enrollment process.
