International Student Programs

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2

These programs benefit students transitioning to high school by including field experiences, the use of diverse social settings, assignments, and activities, which aids students in the development of their holistic knowledge and awareness.

Students will learn to apply pragmatic communicative strategies and techniques while performing specific functions, which allow them to be successful in both formal and informal situations. Students will also learn to apply group discussion methodologies, leadership skills, and management techniques. Likewise, students will have the unique experience of expanding on classroom activities through co-curricular opportunities around Southern California which broaden the classroom experience and allow for additional hands-on applications.
