International Student Admissions Requirements
All international student applicants are required to work with an established recruiting agency. The King’s Christian School relies on our agency partners to handle home stay arrangements, communication with international families, and tuition payments.
Please refer to our International Admissions Checklist for a printable guide to the process.
The King’s Christian School accepts international students for Fall and Spring semesters. Fall semester begins in late August; the application deadline is May 30. Spring semester begins in early January, with an application deadline of November 30.
STEP ONE: International applicants should submit all of the following items through their agency:
