North Cobb Christian School partners with families from around the world to host and educate students through our International Student Program.
Since launching the International Student Program in 2006, our school has welcomed students from China, Korea, Vietnam, Brazil, Germany, Panama and more. In fact, eleven percent of our most recent graduating class was comprised of international students! These students are given a top-notch education as they experience true American life alongside one of our amazing homestay families. In turn, they impart a beautiful, diverse element to our school family.
The NCCS International Program is open to students in grades 7 through 12. We request that students apply either through an agency or a family member in the state of Georgia. If using an agency, NCCS will accept the agency application forms or the NCCS online application.
Our international students experience an academically challenging and unique curriculum, resulting in an enriching educational experience. We offer classes especially designed for international students, mainstreaming students into our regular program in order to prepare them for their studies at the best universities. Our students have a 100 percent acceptance rate into post-secondary institutions.NCCS is a SEVIS-approved school, licensed by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program to issue I-20 forms, which allows international students to obtain an F1 student visa.
North Cobb Christian School also offers:
- Support and instruction personalized for the English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL) student.
- On-campus SAT preparation courses.
- An International Student Advisor and College Counselor who work closely with each student in the areas of academic advancement, college planning, and college applications.
- A diverse international student population from countries all over the world. Approximately 10 percent of our most recent graduating classes have been comprised of international students.
North Cobb Christian School partners with international student agencies to find a great fit between homestay families and students. Our families are very kind and loving, sharing culture here in the U.S. while learning about a culture different from their own.
Many of our host families have children who already attend NCCS and are very invested in our school community. They invite international students to really become part of their family.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT LIFE
The first day an international student arrives at NCCS, he or she is part of a family. Our international students get involved in every aspect of our curricular and cocurricular activities. They participate in class discussions, take part in fine arts projects and performances, perform on our athletic fields, interact with local and international communities through our program, and so much more.
