Expectations of Enrolled International Students
International students must attend Central Catholic full-time, be involved in our school's culture and environment, uphold all policies in our Student Handbook, and pass all classes in order to maintain F-1 student status. There are various systems and elements of the student experience that we want all students to become oriented with! We build a support network around each international student and want to ensure their success and well-being in all areas of their life: social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental.
