International Student Program Guidelines and Enrollment

Lanier Christian Academy values the diversity that international students bring to the school setting, recognizing that the knowledge and understanding students gain from interacting with those from different backgrounds and cultures enriches the educational experience for everyone. 


International applications will only be accepted for the Traditional Model academic program of studies. International students need daily language immersion to advance the English language skills necessary to progress through a college prep diploma program.  Applications will be reviewed by the Dean of Students and the administrator corresponding to the grade level of the international student.  The same administrators will conduct a Skype interview with the student before accepting the student for enrollment and issuing an I-20.
