Take a look into what it is like to be a Host Parent for an international student.
The vision of NRCA is to be a lighthouse of Kingdom education worldwide. Therefore, the International Student Program was born in 2011-2012 with eight students and has grown to as many as forty-three students. NRCA offers a balanced education where we have strong college-preparatory academics in conjunction with excellence in fine arts and athletics. It has been exciting to see these students branch out in student life and participate in many of these NRCA activities.
Currently, we are working with two agencies: New Oasis and American Home Life International. These agencies are providing sixty hours of English Language Learning for first year students. The agencies also provide a program coordinator to assist students and host families. New Oasis provides their Chinese students an academic coordinator to help students achieve their academic goals for graduation. Our College Counseling Director, Mrs. Susan Etheridge, will assist these students in the International Student College Admissions Process.
