Covenant Christian School began its acceptance of international students in the 2006-2007 school year, and has continued to receive international students each year since then. The students attend CCS on a short-stay basis, usually for a period of six to eight weeks which coincide with the ‘winter break’ from school in their home country. Due to the significant success of our program, and word-of-mouth sharing of their experience at CCS, we have averaged twelve international students per year since its inception. Students come for the experience and acquisition of English skills. A number of the students return for additional short-stay periods for the next year or two following their initial stay. During their time with CCS, these students are fully immersed in the classroom curriculum, gain a better understanding of English, learn about Jesus through daily Bible lessons and weekly chapel attendance, and make good friends.
