While Christian Academy has hosted international students for many years, the school began an intentional program in 2010. International students find their way to the Christian Academy school community through various pathways including local family connections, relationships made on mission trips and through partner schools and organizations in other countries.
As a school providing a biblical worldview through the curriculum, it is a natural fit to bring global perspective to the school community. Christian Academy School System students have the opportunity to learn about other countries first hand and to make an impact without having to go across the world. International students provide new perspectives that help the school continue to strive for excellence in all that is done. Christian Academy families graciously host international students providing more opportunities to build community.
International students are expected to abide by all Christian Academy rules and guidelines both at school and home including those found in the Family Handbook as well as those contained in the International Student Guidelines.
