About

Independent schools are welcoming a growing population of international students. Are we meeting these students' needs, maximizing the value of students' diverse backgrounds, and inviting them fully into school lives and missions? This event will explore how schools can better serve international students, especially "homestay" international students. We will share how a school can better understand international students, and provide tools so that the school can help students better understand and embrace the school's mission.

Participants will have time to problem-solve and share effective strategies, best practices, and resources.

 

Key Presentation: An Holistic Approach to Managing an International Student Program
For both day and boarding schools, there is much to gain from admitting international students. But, there is much to lose if the admission director, and the administration, does not take the time to develop ethical enrollment management policies when accepting International Students into your community. A culturally competent and knowledgeable staff and faculty is critical to running a successful international program. This session is intended to give you a crash course on admitting, and supporting, international students.
