WCA's International Student Program
WCA has been blessed to host a variety of students from all over the world. It is an awesome opportunity for our students to experience different cultures on a personal and up close basis.
Washtenaw Christian Academy has welcomed students from Brazil, Chile, China, Germany, Japan, Korea, and Sweden. We look forward to sharing with you all that WCA has to offer through our Christian, college-preparatory program.

The Form I-20 is needed to apply for the F-1 Visa at United States consulate and embassies abroad, apply for change of non-immigrant status in the United States to F-1, or secure permission to transfer to Washtenaw Christian Academy from another school in the United States in continued F-1 status.
