Greetings from the Great Wall

 

Associate Director of Admission and International Programs Paula Wills send us greeting from the Great Wall of China! She was invited by New Oasis International Education, a Virginia-based agency that matches students with American independent schools, to join its team and leaders from several schools across the U.S. on a 14-day trip to China. Local attendees also include the Georgia Independent School Association president, the North Carolina Independent School Association president and local representatives from The Lovett School and Woodward Academy.
 
Members of the group are presenting their schools at educational symposiums in Beijing, Chengdu, Xi’an, Hangzhou and Shanghai. During this time, they will meet Chinese families interested in educating their students in America. Mrs. Wills is speaking about “Cross-Cultural Acclimation into an American Classroom” and interview prospective Chinese students. A school of excellence, Mount Pisgah Christian School’s reputation has spread all the way across the globe. The School now has 30 international students from four different countries. The world-class education offered at Mount Pisgah provides all of our students opportunities to excel in the global marketplace.
