International Student Program
RCCA is a Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) certified school for 9th -12th grade students.
SEVP certification allows institutions to issue Forms I-20, "Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status," to prospective international students after admitting them for a program of study. Prospective international students then use the Form I-20 to apply for a F-1 visa to enter the United States. The F-1 Visa (Academic Student) allows you to enter the United States as a full-time student.
Once we receive the application, application fee, and all required documents, we will then arrange an interview by zoom with our school administrator, Mrs. Chase.
After administrator approval and acceptance into RCCA, we will require a $1000 deposit (within 5 days).
Once we receive the deposit, an I-20 Form (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student) will be issued to the student by our academy.
The student will then be required to make payment of the I-901 SEVIS fee to the US Immigration and
Customs Enforcement. That can be done here https://www.fmjfee.com/i901fee/index.html
After you have made the payment for the 901 fee, you will get a confirmation receipt from SEVIS.
When these both are complete, you may then take them to the US Embassy or consulate for their approval.
Students and parents are responsible to stay in communication with administration regarding embassy appointments and approval.
