Admissions Process

The program is selective, admission standards are high, and only fully qualified students are accepted into the program. Admission is a three-step process:

  1. Completion of the online application and submission of all the supporting documents via mail or email
  2. Personal Interview (in person or digital)
  3. Admissions decision by RCS Global

Upon acceptance to Redwood Christian Schools, and after payment of half of tuition, the I-20 will be issued to the student. This document is the basis for receiving an F-1 visa status from the United States Department of Homeland Security. Within two weeks before starting school, the student is expected to secure medical insurance and make sure all immunizations are up to date.


RCS Global Homestay Program provides families to host international students attending RCS. Our program provides a loving system of support as an extension and an integral part of our educational system. The host student acquires language skills and cultural understanding as a member of the host family. In order to provide the best support possible through our program, we require the family to complete an application and obtain references before the home interview and live scan fingerprint for clearance. Once a host student is matched with a host family, home visits are performed monthly throughout the school year, and we are available as needed for questions and support.


In January current international students are required to re-enroll by an online form including the re-enrollment payment. Doing this by February 1 reserves the international student's seat for the following school year. Full tuition and activity fees are due by July 15.
