Before KELLY, McKAY, and HARTZ, Circuit Judges.

Petitioner Bo Hae Lee seeks judicial review to determine whether an agency’s statutory construction of one of its operating statutes is legally permissible. Ms. Lee is a citizen of South Korea. She came to the United States as a twelve-year-old in 1999 with her parents on a B-2 nonimmigrant visitor visa. She subsequently applied for and received a change in visa status to the F-1 nonimmigrant student category, allowing her to attend a private school approved by the Attorney General of the United States. The last approved private school Ms. Lee attended was Riverview Christian Academy in Colorado. After her sophomore year, when Ms. Lee was sixteen, the school ceased operations. The school’s closure required Ms. Lee to seek an alternative for schooling. Riverview Christian Academy attempted to assist Ms. Lee in applying to another private school, but the other private schools were too far from her residence, and Ms. Lee understood it would be difficult for her to achieve admittance. Therefore, Ms. Lee attended a local public high school, graduating in May 2005.
