Question: I am Canadian citizen. I have two boys 16 and 11. I want my children to stay in US and pursue their studies. I talked to public schools in Dallas and enrolled my children in the school. But on the border, I was asked if my children could take student visa. How can I get student visa for them. Please suggest the easiest way out.

Answer: To understand the kind of schools, allowing students to obtain student visa, there is a difference between private school and a public school. The SEVP certified private school can issue student visas. However, a public school cannot issue I-20s for a student visa up until high school.
