International Admissions

International students, we know how hard it can be to feel at home in a new country. Our warm and welcoming community makes CVCS the ideal place to learn and grow. Students from all over the world come here for elite academics in a beautiful coastal community. 

An international student is defined as any student who does not hold a United States birth certificate or proof of United States Citizenship. A green card holder is still categorized as an international student. Based on English proficiency tests, a student will be enrolled in courses which may include one or more ELD classes. Students are required to have intermediate English proficiency or higher to be admitted.

Thank you for your interest in CVCS. I hope you and your family will consider visiting our and our vibrant community to see the CVCS difference for yourself. Campus visits for prospective international students and their families are available Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3 pm. To schedule a campus tour, please email me at

The opportunities for international students at Capistrano Valley Christian Schools is beyond what you have at other private schools. The continuous love and support at CVCS is similar to a family. As soon as I transferred into CVCS I felt right at home with all of the support from the students, staff, and faculty. Alex C, 9th Grade International Student From China
