Arriving from overseas and starting school in the US can be an intimidating experience. Students arrive jet lagged in an unfamiliar environment. Once school begins, so do the challenges. Imagine sitting in a US history class, having never heard the names of the people and places, or opening a math book to find that you have no idea what the questions are asking. Educators at schools that accept international students are very familiar with the issues that both the schools and the students face when students arrive unprepared.
Transition training at Kemsley Academy helps new students to acclimate to the country, English academia language, and the boarding school environment at the same time they are learning important skills to help them adapt and succeed when they start high school or college for the first time in the US.
