an AC Transfer StudentMeet the Community
For over a decade, Arlington Catholic has received international students as a SEVIS-authorized F-1 visa
granting school. Each year, approximately 60 seats are made available for international students.
International students come from several countries, and add to the school community in many ways. Here
are some of the most-often asked questions regarding the international application process:
Students come to us primarily from China, Korea, Vietnam and Russia. We have also welcomed students from Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Germany, Thailand, Nepal, Italy, and Sweden in the past.
Arlington Catholic gives preference to students who have already completed at least a full year in an American school, whether they are seeking a seat for 9th grade or transferring in from another high school. Otherwise, preference is given to students who have been in an international school where English is spoken predominantly.
