About BASIS.ed ISP

The BASIS.ed International Student Program offers a dynamic and rigorous American education experience for F-1 international students looking to study in the United States for grades 9, 10, or 11. International students enroll in a full course of study at any one of  nine SEVP-certified public high school campuses in Arizona. Each of these campuses is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students: BASIS Ahwatukee, BASIS Chandler, BASIS Flagstaff, BASIS Mesa, BASIS Oro Valley, BASIS Peoria, BASIS Phoenix, BASIS Scottsdale and BASIS Tucson North.

Enrollment in the BASIS.ed International Student Program at BASIS Charter Schools is limited to one academic term (10 months). Space is limited for international students to ensure full integration with the rest of the BASIS Charter School population.

Incoming students typically arrive in August and depart the following May. Students have the option to transfer to a private U.S. high school upon successful completion of their academic program at BASIS Charter Schools.

The BASIS.ed International Student Program enables valuable educational experiences for our students, and instills in them a love of learning and everlasting sense of curiosity. Our international students bring their personal perspective and experience to the classroom, and in return they receive a challenging and enriching education.

Our program welcomes a diverse international population, attracting students from all different backgrounds and areas of interest. Our international students are motivated, high-performing individuals. They appreciate the academic and cultural value of such an exchange opportunity. All incoming students are selected to participate in the program through a series of placement tests, evaluation of their English language skills, and a Skype or in-person interview.
