If I'm planning on studying at a public high school next year while living with my uncle, who will be my legal guardian and who is an U.S. citizen, do I still need an F-1 visa?
Question Details: Or is my status different because my legal guardian will be an U.S. citizen?
Your status is determine by YOUR immigration status in the US and not your guardian's. If you are a foreign student and do not have a permanent resident status in the US then you are a foreign student and need a F-1 visa in order to attend school in the US.
