International Students 国际学生

Welcome to The Geneva School, a Christian classical school in Central Florida inspiring students from K4–12th grade to love beauty, think deeply, and pursue Christ’s calling.

What does it mean to be a Christian school?

It means that our belief in God and his son Jesus influences every area of our studies: science, history, and mathematics, not just Bible class. Students are not required to be Christians. Most of our international students are not Christians. However, parents must agree to have their children taught in this way; they will be exposed to Christian ideas. In addition, education is always about formation. This means that we care about and educate the whole student: mind, body, and soul. Students are not just brains to be filled with information: they are beings with loves and desires, and we want to train them to pursue goodness, truth, and beauty in all areas of life, not just academics.

What does it mean to be a classical school?

It means that our methods of education come from “classical” Greece and Rome, and were perfected in the Middle Ages. We teach grammar, logic, and rhetoric, training students to read and write, but also to think and reason, and to communicate convincingly. Because we believe that all truth comes from God, we also believe that all knowledge and all areas of study are fundamentally connected: we train students to see these connections and relationships. For instance, we show them how mathematics connects to science and the arts, how science connects to history and language, and how all of them are connected to logic and rhetoric. We train students to not just learn how to manipulate the world around them, but to seek true understanding and to love learning.

How do international students fit?

We believe that this education is good for all children, not just English speakers from the United States. We know that many systems of education, in other countries and the USA, teach to the test, or do not allow children to ask questions, or destroy their love and desire for learning. We want to offer a different, better way that focuses on true understanding and a love of learning, and allows students to ask questions and pursue truth for themselves. We also value the unique perspective that international students bring to our community: we want to hear their stories, understand their cultures, and give them a warm welcome and introduction to the United States. If you are an international student who will be entering 8th, 9th, or 10th grade next year, we would love to have you join our school family!
