International Students

The International Program at Lions Gate Christian Academy provides a unique opportunity for families seeking an international experience within a Christian environment.

At LGCA, international students are immersed in the English language through placement in the regular classroom with their English-speaking peers. The ELL (English Language Learner) teacher assesses ELL needs, provides small-group instruction twice a week, and collaborates with classroom teachers to provide in-class support for each student.
