International Student Program



Elk County Catholic High School has partnered with The Cambridge Network of International Education to ensure the best possible international program. The Cambridge Network’s international student program prepares students for life abroad prior to arriving at Elk County Catholic and continues to provide international students with on-going support throughout the school year. International students coming from China must work with The Cambridge Network to apply to Elk County Catholic High School.

To submit an application or if you have any questions, please contact our consultants at The Cambridge Network at To begin the application process, please fill out the Student Inquiry Form found here.



International students who attend Elk County Catholic High School will reside with families in our community.

Becoming a host family gives you the opportunity to:

  • Participate in cross cultural exchange
  • Build lifelong relationships
  • Receive a generous stipend
  • Foster connections to American education

To learn more about this exciting opportunity, please contact Kim Schlimm (834-7800,



Please note that the international student tuition differs from the tuition rates of the local students that attend Elk County Catholic High School. For more information on international student tuition, please contact The Cambridge Network.
