Dear Prospective International Student:

As a prospective international student, we welcome you to Rainier Christian Schools. A Christian education is like no other in both content and objective and we trust you will discover this in the months ahead as your student gets fully integrated into the life of their new school!

The following information will help you complete the international student registration process. (As applicable, some forms are linked below):

International Student Application Process
International Student Application
International Student Reg Fee Schedule
International Student Interview Form
Immunization Form (Washington State Dept. of Health)
(The above items must be completed and turned in by applicant and/or parent/guardian.)

  • Copy of TOEFL or ITEP language scores (provided by student)
  • Copy of the student’s passport (provided by student)
  • Payment of the International Student Fee (annual fee), Registration Fee (annual fee), and the Facility Fee (one-time fee)

Please give your respective campus (e.g., high school, middle school, or elementary school) a call and they will be happy to set-up an appointment to process an I-20, the mandatory form needed by every international student wishing to attend school in the United States.

Upon issuance of the I-20, it is then given to the student, their parent, guardian or representative, so the student can then go back to the embassy/consulate of their home country and apply for their student visa. The timing of this process varies from country to country, so please allow several weeks to ensure there is sufficient time for the student visa to be issued before the student wishes to commence studies at Rainier Christian Schools.

We look forward to “holding a spot” for your student. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Thank you and God bless you.
