Students representing a variety of countries greatly enhance the learning environment of The King’s Academy as our domestic students interact with, and gain the perspective of, a variety of cultures. The international student program is open to students who are fully fluent in the English language and are excited about immersing themselves into the American culture. As a day school only, international students must have family or a host family with which to live during their enrollment at The King's Academy.
