Yorktown’s International Student Program Offers Freedom to “Do What You Love”
What a difference it makes to have the freedom to “do what you love” without concern of cultural or political implications. Perhaps an educational environment that supports discovery learning, critical thinking and self-knowledge is the bridge to such enlightened education.
That is exactly what Yorktown Education offers.
Amidst a turbulent public education system that tries to make needed changes, the best option is not to wait for those changes to occur. This is your child’s education at risk. Making the decision to choose the best possible learning path is one of the most important decisions any parent will ever make.
Why is it so important to zero in on what a child is most passionate about and loves to do?
Because it ignites inspiration and desire to learn. Given a voice in what will be a focus of lifelong learning, children take more ownership in their achievements.
Two important concepts that set Yorktown Education’s International Student Program apart are collaboration and community.
While the International Student Program (ISP) places strong emphasis on academics, enhancing students’ English speaking and writing skills and preparing them for college, it goes many steps beyond.
ISP students have the opportunity to experience the American way of life, with the option to live with a host family or an adult of college age. The have the chance to integrate into the culture and feel part of a unique family environment. This element of community helps ISP students adapt, feel at ease and confident in their new surroundings.
At Yorktown, ISP students enjoy the freedom of collaboration, speaking out, sharing their ideas and being heard by teachers and peers. Discovering differences as well as shared experiences and ideas builds a strong foundation of collaborative learning at Yorktown.
When making a decision as important as your child’s education, consider the extended value of Yorktown Education. We invite you to take a tour, meet our teachers and administrators, and see for yourself why “doing what you love” gives a child the best possible path toward lifelong learning.
