Immigration Services for Students
ICHS staff and teachers are dedicated to providing students with the help and support they may need both inside and outside the classroom. Especially in the current political climate, we understand the importance of protecting our most vulnerable populations of students. If ICHS students have any questions or concerns about their own immigration status or the immigration status of a family member or friend, the school and staff are here to help.
Students can speak to the school's guidance staff if they have specific questions about immigration status. These conversations with staff are completely confidential. In addition, ICHS has contacts with local organizations that specialize in helping immigrant families. Follow the links below to get more information about these organizations and to make appointments. Most of these organizations offer free or low-cost assistance.
