International Student Support Overview

The International Student Support Program at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy is designed for highly motivated international students who plan to attend a four-year college or university in the United States. The program best serves incoming 9th- and 10th-grade high school students who are sufficiently fluent in English to meet the challenges of a college-prep curriculum in English. All international students attend mainstream classes, although additional support is offered.
