International Students

Bishop McNamara partners with Gphomestay in order to ensure that our international students have a welcoming and positive experience.

Host families get the opportunity to embrace a different culture and provide an authentic American experience to a student.

Bishop McNamara accepts international students and may issue an I-20 through the Diocese of Joliet to secure an F-1 Visa. If the international student is from China, please contact The Cambridge Institute to arrange for an interview and to complete the necessary paperwork to apply. For more information, contact Mr. Terry Granger .
