Austin Catholic welcomes and encourages international students in grades 9th and 10th from partnering nations to join our amazing student body. We seek to diversify our student body remaining around 8-10% international students so as to not overwhelm our domestic population
Due to Covid-19 this program has been placed on hold with the intent to admit our first cohort of international students in the fall of 2021.
Check back soon for updates.
International Student Admissions Process:
1. Complete the Austin Catholic Application for Admissions for International Students before March 20
2. Submit the previous two years’ report cards and transcripts (translated to English) as part of the application. In addition, a writing sample is requested.
3. Complete a Skype Interview with Admissions Team – during the interview we will also determine your English Language Proficiency through reading and our chat. This satisfies the language proficiency requirement test – we will schedule the interview once your application has been submitted.
Once these are completed Austin Catholic Admissions team will determine acceptance. Acceptances will be notified in writing.
As part of the second step, we will need to have documentation and information to answer the following questions and requirements. Students will not be issued an I20 without the remaining documents.
- Documented financial stability and ability to pay tuition and fees

- Valid passport / passport photo (at least valid 6 months into future)
- Birth Certificate
- Proof of Family name, Country of birth and Country of citizenship
- Home address
