Applying as an internation student even though I can't get a visa?
You shouldn't be worried about school reporting you.
I never had a problem with it.
Where do you live?
When I applied for my application, I just put that I'm not a citizen or PR and that I don't have a valid visa.
Just call the school again and tell them about your status, if they can't help you, try going to your high school counselor.
