International Student Program
Liberty Classical wants to make our classrooms accessible to students from around the world.
Liberty enrolls approximately 290 students in preschool through grade 12. Class sizes are limited to approximately 20 students, allowing our teachers the ability to come alongside each individual student.
In addition, Liberty offers a multitude of extracurricular activities for students outside of the classroom. Students can take part in sports, join friends for movie nights, participate in field trips and attend the winter formal.
At Liberty, students, parents and teachers from diverse backgrounds come together in a spirit of joy, encouragement and dedication to pursue excellence in education.
Liberty offers a rich, college-preparatory curriculum complete with math, science, humanities, world languages, fine arts, music, and athletics. In addition, our classical approach teaches students formal Logic, Rhetoric, and Latin. Liberty students score in the top 13% of the nation on ACT scores, and graduate with more than $20,000 in scholarships per student, per year of college. At Liberty, our goal is to prepare students for the challenges of college and all of life.
Liberty’s international student program is a SEVIS-certified, I-20 issuing school. We accept applications from students in grades 8-10 who aspire to graduate from Liberty and attend college.
The following steps are required for admission:
1. Complete the Application
Once the application is submitted, the student will be contacted by Liberty to arrange an interview via Skype.
Acceptance is based on the student’s application, interview and compliance with Acceptance Conditions for International Students. The Office of Admissions at Liberty Classical Academy will notify each student of the admissions decision.
4. Payment of Tuition and Fees
International Tuition for school year 2020-2021:

School Uniforms Varies: All students must supply their own uniforms according to the Student Policy Manual guidelines.
Optional Fees and Expenses:

As a part of the enrollment process, the student must submit an Affidavit of Financial Support verifying the family's ability to afford the experience at Liberty Classical Academy.
Once full payment has been received, the student is officially enrolled at Liberty for the specified term.
5. I-20 Issued
Liberty will issue an I-20 for the student, after which the student must obtain a visa in his home country.
6. Host Family Match
When the student has successfully obtained a visa, he will be paired with a pre-screened Liberty host family. See host family description below.
Arrangements will be made for arrival based on the student’s enrollment date.
Liberty strives to make payments easy and accessible for families abroad. We have included activities fees in the cost of tuition so that our international families do not have to worry about multiple payments throughout the year for things like field trips and athletics.
Host Family Placement
Liberty’s host family program is unique in that all international students are placed with a current Liberty family to ensure a safe, nurturing Christian environment. We can assist with student placement with one of our Liberty families. You are also welcome to work with an outside agency.
