Since 1997 Life Center Academy has been a SEVIS approved school qualified to issue I-20s for international students to receive F-1 student visas from the United States government.
Life Center Academy is a Christian faith based educational institution with students from preschool through high school. Our international student program is for students in grades 9 through 12. English proficiency is a requirement for admission. We do not have an ESL program. We are a college preparatory high school. All of our students go to good colleges or universities upon graduation from our school.
In the admission process two letters of recommendation are required from current teachers. One must be the English teacher of the student. A skype interview or in the instance where the student is visiting the United States a personal interview is required.
Unless an international student has relatives living in the area of our school we require students to seek admission to our school through an existing program which brings students from their home country to study in the United States. The relative or the sending organization will be responsible for providing housing for the student. Life Center Academy does not provide housing.
We are located on 106 acres of land near the cities of Philadelphia and New York. At Life Center Academy the student will have a good cross-cultural experience. The United States of America can be very different from the student's homeland. It could be a while before one gets to enjoy American food.
At Life Center Academy we promise to train your mind, your body, and your spirit. After school students can play soccer, basketball, or baseball. If one likes to sing one can join our chapel choir. If one likes drama one can join our Theatre Club. Every Wednesday after school we have a Bible Club for students who want to learn more about the Christian faith. We also have a fitness center if the student wants to exercise after school.
We guarantee that our teachers will work hard to help each international student. The international student must also work hard as a student of Life Center Academy.
