International Admission Information

Thank you for considering City Christian Schools.

Application is made directly to the school by the family seeking admission. Student admission must be facilitated by an agent or supporting organization, such as a church or an independent organization whose purpose is to bring foreign students to the United States. The student must also be represented by a local coordinator who works closely with the school officials, CCS International Student Coordinator, the host family, the home country family,  and the agent or supporting organization.

Students will be considered for admission to City Christian School based on the following documents.

Official English transcriptions of academic records are required. They are to cover the schooling from grade seven (7) to the present day. If the student has been out of school (that is, if the student has not attended during any regularly scheduled school term) please include a statement explaining the reasons.

Three non-family references regarding the student’s character are required. If possible, two of these recommendations should be a teacher and a pastor.

A record of immunizations is required. If the immunizations are incomplete, the students will be expected to complete them as soon as possible upon entrance into City Christian School.

An affidavit of support for the student is required. This will include both the official Affidavit of Support form, as well as appropriate bank records to demonstrate ability to support the student. If the student is accepted to City Christian School, these documents will be photocopied for our files and the originals returned, with the I-20 form from the school, so that the student may obtain the F-1 Student Visa.

In keeping with our purpose and philosophy to assist and work directly with the families of our students, all students coming to our school must reside with a host family (may be their own relatives or family friends) approved by the school whose own religious beliefs are compatible with those of City Christian Schools.

Below are the appropriate forms needed for application to City Christian Schools.

Please print off these forms, fill them out, and either email them back to or fax them to 503-257-2221. For questions, please contact Mrs. Chingying Phillips at 503-889-5565.


City Christian Schools work together with the home and church to provide a Christ-centered spiritual, academic, and physical foundation in a nurturing environment to produce citizens who will be a transforming influence in the world.

The primary responsibility for the education of their children lies with the parents. Children are to be taught at home as well as at school with the awareness that all truth is God’s truth, including history, mathematics, science, physical education, music and the arts. The teachers at CCS become partners in this goal.

Jesus Christ is to be the center of all learning and living and this will guide the development of the child’s character and moral behavior.

We look forward to serving your family.
