Mt. Olive may accept 30 Chinese students to high school

Mount Olive is planning to welcome 30 Chinese students to experience their senior year at the high school, a move that Superintendent Larrie Reynolds said will net the district $600,000 in tuition payments. Reynolds said the district is anticipating approval on the program, which would welcome about 30 high-achieving English-speaking students from China for their senior year of high school during the 2017-18 academic year, within a month or two. The district will select the participants for the program based on applications, academic transcripts, and interviews.
To establish a transfer program, the district has partnered with Edu-Link, a Paramus-based consulting firm that connects international and U.S. schools. To accept foreign students, schools must be approved by the federal government and be certified as a Student and Exchange Visitor Program institution. The district has already filed the necessary paperwork, and an inspector recently visited Mount Olive High School and submitted a recommendation. Once officially approved, Reynolds said the next step in the process will be looking for host families, Mount Olive parents of high school seniors who would be willing to take in a Chinese student.
