International Student Program

Grades 9-12

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.
