International Q & A

    When can I apply for the 2020-21 school year?
  • Applications will be accepted starting January 1, 2020. Please send your application as soon as possible. Spaces for international students are limited. You may contact our office before that date for more information and to express your interest in our program. We will assist you so that you will be prepared to submit your application on January 1.
    Does ALA accept students in January for the second semester?
  • ALA accepts students for second semester if there is space available in the international program. Contact for more information.
    How many international students are at Arizona Lutheran Academy?
  • There are currently 13 international students enrolled at Arizona Lutheran Academy for the 2019-20 school year. We have students from China, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Spain, Germany and Ethiopia.
    I've heard that Phoenix, Arizona is in a desert. Isn't it too hot to send my child to school there?
  • Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. The summers are very hot, however all buildings and homes are fully air-conditioned and are kept at a very comfortable, cool temperature. The weather will be hot in August and September at the start of the school year, but begins to cool off in October. During the rest of the school year, the temperatures are very comfortable!
    Do international students live in a dorm or with a host family?
  • All international students at ALA live with a carefully selected host family. This gives our international students greater opportunities to practice their English and learn more about American culture. Your host family will provide a comfortable place for you to stay and study. They will also provide your meals and transportation to and from ALA. Being a part of an American family is one of the great parts about being an international student at ALA!
    Do ALA students wear uniforms to school?
  • No, students at ALA are not required to wear uniforms to school. There is a dress code that must be followed, but most students wear nice shorts or jeans and shirts to school.
