International Student Program

Welcome to Hickory Grove Christian School’s International Student Department. Our program began in 2013, and we provide educational opportunities to international students on F1 visas. Our school is more diverse and a richer environment because of the many cultures that are represented in our international program. Hickory Grove Christian School is a SEVIS (Student Exchange and Visitor Information System) certified school to issue I-20’s for an international student to obtain an F1 non-immigrant student visa to study in the United States.  HGCS prepares students excellently to enter the rigor of higher education.  

Hickory Grove Christian has been providing host family homestay since 2013 and we take pride in providing support for our international students all along the way both in and out of school.  If you have admissions questions or are interested in hosting an international student, please email our student coordinator, Mrs. Missy Smith at  .

Please refer to the information below for the application process and necessary steps that must be complete before the I-20 is issued.
