International Student Program
Mekeel’s International Student Program (ISP) began in September of 2013 with the goal of increasing diversity in the Academy and touching the lives of others across the world. Most of our students hail from China, but we currently have and have had students from Spain, Nigeria, and Brazil. Mekeel’s ISP students stay in dorms designed specifically to provide them with a safe, comfortable, and loving environment in which to thrive, or they stay in homes with families carefully selected to meet the students’ social and emotional needs. We communicate regularly with ISP students’ parents, sending academic and personal updates including highlights from the fun trips and activities in which the students participate.
