FOREIGN EXCHANGE INFO
Moses Lake Christian Academy has been approved by the government to accept both longer term F1 students and one year J1 students through foreign exchange companies such as ASA and ASSE International, Inc. Students who seek education here must have strong English language skills. We do not offer "English as a Second Language" services at MLCA.
If you are seeking a Washington State diploma for your student you must apply for a long term F1 visa. This will allow you to complete a full course of high school studies at Moses Lake Christian Academy. Diplomas cannot be granted unless graduation requirements are met.
MLCA does not provide housing for foreign exchange students. You must have an approved host family and this family must be available to interview with the school.
The following is a list of documents that need to be submitted for application:
1. Fill out both the Foreign Exchange Student Application and the MLCA Student Application for Admission.
2. Application fee must be paid in US dollars of $1,000.00 for F1 Visa or $500.00 for J1 Visa.
3. Financial Evidence of sufficient funds to cover tuition and living expenses such as a signed bank statement from your bank manager declaring your financial ability to pay all school tuition, fees and living expenses.
4. A Copy of the student's current signed passport.
