International Students

Welcome to ICHS’ International Students page. We would like to welcome you to our community and glad you are interested in getting more information about our school. We are excited that you have chosen our school for your education.

This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students. An I-20 Form from ICHS will allow you to obtain a United States F-type Student Visa. ICHS is able to accept International students who are proficient in English in grades 9-12. ICHS is listed on the SEVIS web site

We are here to help you further your education in the United States and make a smooth transition to the college or university of your choice. ICHS is dedicated to assisting you during your time at our school and has, therefore, developed applications, guides, tips and frequently asked questions to ease your transition or decision-making.

Our ICHS’ admissions office will discuss with you the academic requirements and give you an acceptance to our school. Once the ICHS application has been filled out and English proficiency testing scores have been sent to our school office, they will be reviewed and then an I-20 will be issued. This process can take up to a month so please plan early and make contact as soon as you decide. Keep in mind some of your consulate appointments cannot be made till you get your I-20 number, so please plan ahead.

We have regular attendance of students from South Korea, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Serbia, Brazil, Columbia, Haiti, Jamaica, Guyana, France, Nigeria and Liberia. We hope that your experience in Philadelphia is a great experience for you.
