School Notes:

We accept two types of international students at our school:1) International students who live with a family member in the Lansing area. The family member is responsible for making sure that all tuition and fees are paid, providing transportation to and from school, obtaining insurance for the student, and taking care of the student during the school year.  The student must first take the ibTOEFL test and submit all scores to Lansing Catholic High School. If the scores are high enough, then we will consider admitting the student and at that time would accept paperwork (application and tuition worksheet) to begin the registration process. 2) All international students who wish to live with a host family must apply to our school through the agency DMD PHP (www.phpusa.com). All applications and tuition and fees are paid to the agency and then the agency pays and turns in the paperwork to our school. The agency tests English language skills, arranges host families and insurance for international students. Please contact DMD PHP for more details about their program: www.phpusa.com or 1-866-822-1095.
