International Student Policy
Our school, in accordance with federal law, does not inquire about the immigration status of our students. However, it is our responsibility to remind all families that it is a violation of the Tourist B-1 or B-2 Visa to attend classes while on a B-1 or B-2 Visa, and doing so could result in a cancellation of that visa. If a family is considering changing a B-1 or B-2 Tourist Visa for an F-1 Student Visa, they should consult with an immigration lawyer to help them understand the implications of completing the application. 

Should the family decide to apply for an F-1 Visa, Immaculata-La Salle High School will assist the family accordingly. The student may not attend school until his/her status in the United States allows the student to attend school. An I-20 application will be processed after the student is accepted and registered.

If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar at 305-854-2334 ext. 123 or
