Huron Valley Lutheran High School has a noteworthy reputation for excellence in education. International students appreciate the intimate size of our high school, the inclusive culture, and excellent teachers and curriculum. The International Program is for High School Students from outside the United States interested in a one year or multi-year program, and we are able to issue the I-20 visa. We welcome applications from international students and value the cultural diversity and individual gifts our current international students bring to the student body. International students have attended HVL from one to four years. Most choose to stay and graduate, later matriculating to institutions of higher learning in Michigan or elsewhere in the United States.

We encourage students who are bright, inquisitive, imaginative, and ambitious to apply. We currently have students from China and Senegal enrolled at HVL. For more information or for a fee schedule, contact us at mail@hvlhs.org or contact our international student coordinator, Kim Pappenfuss at kpappenfuss@hvlhs.org.
