International students attending boarding school at IJGA will be issued an I-20 through Heritage Academy once the deposit and Heritage Academy tuition are paid. International Postgraduate students usually attend IJGA on a tourist visa that is obtained through your country’s embassy. International Postgraduate students who are issued an I-20 must be registered full time with the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
The Heritage English Language Academy provides English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction to non-native speakers in grades 5-12 and through a specialized program for high school graduates. The goal of the Academy is to advance all ESL students to a level of academic and language proficiency so that they can function independently in the mainstream college preparatory classroom setting, or for post-graduate students to enter a college curriculum. A South Carolina standards-based curriculum is taught in English.
