This is not a requirement and an English-proficiency test will be given once a student has arrived.
Once an application is received, it is reviewed by the admissions committee and decided upon for acceptance. The student or agency is then notified by e-mail of acceptance. An invoice is e-mailed along with CCA’s bank routing information and the student or agency is required to submit payment of 1 full semester plus refundable room deposit by wire transfer. CCA will then send the I-20 and other admissions documents by DHL delivery which takes 2 or 3 days to arrive.
CCA issues the I-20 for the F1 student visa which is for multiple years. The J1 visa is a student exchange visa that is only good for one academic year and is usually used by a standard public school. CCA does not issue J1 visas nor do we get involved in trying to switch a student from a J1 to an F1 visa. We are strictly F1.
Our tuition prices are listed on page 3 of our application form which can be viewed

Yes we do! From another American school, most credits will transfer. The same is true for a good majority of international schools. An international student studying at another American school that holds an I-20 for the F1 student visa must also have his I-20 transferred from that school to CCA. We will assist in the process.
