Back to school time marks a flurry of excitement for students and families, a series of “firsts”, photos taken, and new beginnings. This is true in a special way for our new international students. Looking forward to the opportunity to study abroad in an English language academy, our international students arrived to Michigan the week before school started. The students and their families participated in orientation activities: meeting their teachers, touring the dorms, and getting their uniforms. The weekend came to a close with an opening Mass with many of the day students’ families in attendance.
Several of our international students have older brothers or sisters who are alumni of Everest’s international program. The students have high hopes for the year ahead, a year that promises to be filled with memories that will last a lifetime. Please join us in welcoming this year’s international students to the Everest community!
