Families throughout the world have different goals for their children’s education; however, there are some distinct similarities to what they value most when selecting an international school.

The Yorktown Education International Student Program provides all the things parents and students want – and then some. A crucial difference in Yorktown Education is teaching students to discover and “Do What They Love”.
We are student-centered so each student progresses based on their individual accomplishments. From day one, Yorktown’s International Student Program places strong emphasis on academics, creating a foundation for each student’s English speaking and writing skills, preparing them for college, how to experience the American culture, and giving every student a truly gifted education.
International students have the convenient option of living with a host family in the U.S., or they may stay with an adult they know who is college age or above, preferably a relative or family friend. This person or family functions as the international student’s guardian while attending Yorktown.
While there may be other international student program for your child, none will match the extreme educational quality, far-reaching dedication, and individualized guidance that Yorktown Educations provides each child. Contact us today to find out more.
