Redding Christian School welcomes international students into their academic program. International students come to RCS for many reasons. Some come with their family for a short period of time. Others come for their entire four years of high school with the goal of attending an American university. This being the case, we have two options for international students to enroll at RCS.
International Students earning a diploma:
International students transferring into Redding Christian High School from an accredited school will have their earned academics transferred to a Redding Christian School transcript. All classes taken in international schools will be reviewed to determine if full credit will be awarded. In most cases, students will be given five (5) credits for each semester of work completed.
International students will be given full credit for each year of mathematics they have taken. Full credit will be awarded in the sciences. However, all transfer international students must take a lab science at RCS to complete graduation requirements.
It is our desire that the international student be successful in their educational endeavor. We will allow one quarter (sometimes more if necesary) before giving them actual grades in order to help them in the adjustment to the culture and language. They are to be given a “Pass/Fail" based on English Language Aquisition for the work done. The second quarter will be considered their semester grade and credits will be issued accordingly.
Requirement for athletic eligibility will be the same as all other RCS students.
International Students enrolled for “enrichment” purposes only:
International students who are enrolled at RCS for “enrichment” purposes only must declare this at the time of their enrollment. The “enrichment” program may be required of students who are not able to complete the standard California requirements for graduation. These students are to be included in all classroom activities and complete as many of the assignments as possible within their abilities. The student will be given a “Pass” (passing grade) if he completes the work. Each student is to be evaluated as to the language or academic challenges that may exist.
Requirements for athletics are dependent upon the student’s effort and behavior within the classroom.
Please see the High School Curriculum Overview (coming soon) for detailed information about the classes offered at Redding Christian School. If you are interested in becoming an international student at Redding Christian School, please contact our Registrar.
