WELCOME INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS!

The International Student Program at North Clackamas Christian School welcomes both long and short term students from all over the world.  Our school has been a SEVIS certified and I-20 issuing school since 2016 and over the years have enrolled students from China, Germany, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, to name a few.

Our International Student Program exists to provide a formal education that excels at expediting the English immersion process, while sharing the love of God with each student.  Students are offered the opportunity to become proficient in reading, writing, listening and speaking English.  It is our goal to offer all mainstream courses, as well as elective courses such as choir, band, art, drama, and physical education.  Student organizations, activities and all major sports are also available.  At NCCS, international students have all the educational opportunities of American students.

NCCS seeks host families who will provide a home environment that will allow students to thrive and become fully immersed in the American experience.  We understand that international students are new to our culture and may have little or no travel experience outside of their own countries.  For this reason, we make an effort to assure that each student's experience is positive and uplifting.

Whether you are seeking a one year or a shorter immersion experience, or are looking to graduate from our school, we would love to talk with you about our International Student Program.
