International students must reside locally with a parent, grandparent, or uncle/aunt who is the brother/sister of the student’s parent.  (Siblings are not approved to be guardians.)  Otherwise, international students may reside in the home of a pre-approved Judah Christian School host family.

Additional Charges

All students attending Judah with an I-20 will pay an additional $1,000 annual tuition.

Due to greater demands required for processing college applications, a one-time “academic guidance fee” in the amount of $250 will be required for International students entering Judah in the 11th or 12th grade.

Secondary Requirements (7th-12 grade students)

International students must provide documentation of English language proficiency.  We accept the Secondary Level English Proficiency (SLEP) test, TOEFL Junior, TOEFL iBT or comparable test verification.  The Judah administration has set the following standards for the SLEP test: students applying for 7th or 8th grade must score a minimum composite score of 50; students applying for 9th or 10th grade must score a minimum composite score of 55; and students applying for 11th or 12th grade must score a minimum composite score of 60.  Students may submit an initial test score along with their application, however, the administration requires that students also take the SLEP test under Judah supervision before their application will be considered.

International students may be required to retain the services of an English language tutor and provide the administration documentation during their first year at Judah, or as needed.

Elementary International Students (K-6th grade students)

Elementary students are evaluated on a case-by-case basis for entry into our program.
