Meet some of the international students at Faith West Academy

As a private, Christian school, it is our desire to offer opportunities to international students wanting an education in the United States. Faith West Academy is an SEVP approved school and is authorized to issue a Form I-20 VISA.  Please contact Julie Cummins, our Director of Admissions, for more information.  For the most up-to-date and comprehensive information on studying in the United States, please visit the Department of Homeland Security website along with the official SEVP and SEVIS website.

“All student applicants must have a SEVIS generated I-20 issued by an educational institution approved by DHS, which they submit when they are applying for their student visa. The consular officer will need to verify your I-20 record electronically through the SEVIS system in order to process your student visa application. Unless otherwise exempt, participants whose SEVIS I-20 was issued on or after September 1, 2004 must pay a SEVIS I-901 Fee to the Department of Homeland Security for each individual program. The fee may be paid either through a special website, via Western Union, or by mail. See SEVIS-901 Fee or SEVIS for further information on how to pay the fee.”
