International Students

ACS is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant students.  We accept students from around the world to study with and share life with us in the security of an American Christian home.  We have had students from a variety of countries, including Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, and Korea. Why don’t YOU apply today!

New students, if you are interested in attending Aurora Christian High School, click here for details on the Admissions Process.  After submitting the application, you will need to schedule an appointment to speak with our International Student Program Coordinator, Raquel Coley.  She will ask you for transcripts and official school paperwork.  Once accepted, our Admissions Office will begin working on finding just the right host family for you!  We will apply for an F1 visa and work with you throughout the school year.  Students will be required to attend at least one year of ELL class and a guided study hall. 

We look forward to working with you!  Please contact our International Student Program Coordinator, Raquel Coley, with any questions.


International Students are hosted by families who desire to share the love of God with a high school student.  Most often these families have a student at ACS and they become like one of the family.  Host families receive $8,000 ($800/mo. August - May) per international student to offset expenses.  If you are interested in hosting a student from another country for one school year please contact Raquel Coley.

  1. Please contact Mrs. Raquel Coley, our International Student Program Coordinator, to express your interest in hosting a student.

  2. Complete the ACS Host Family Application (contact Raquel Coley for an application). You will be asked to provide a reference on your application.  A criminal background check will be done on all adults members (over 18 years old) of your household.

  3. We will arrange an in-home interview and information session.  All family members must be present.

  4. We ask that you please pray for God’s direction for you and the student.
