Wilmington Christian School provides International Students strong academics while learning about American culture and Christianity. Our school allows students to choose extra curricular activities, athletics, and experiences that are offered on campus to all students. We offer I-20s to students to enter America from foreign countries through F-1 Visas. It is our goal for students to grow and mature academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually while attending our school; ultimately earning a high school diploma and continuing on to higher education.  Wilmington Christian School and our host families are committed to building relationships while providing a safe and nurturing environment to students.
