International Students

Since 2002, Holly Grove Christian School has hosted a number of students from other countries for a full school year. 

During their time with us, students reside with one of our families, where they are incorporated as a family member, celebrating holidays and family events, experiencing church and everyday life, and developing their English-speaking skills.

The experience benefits not only the visiting students, but our domestic students as well.  Together they learn about each others’ cultures, build relationships and gain the understanding that God’s love transcends geographic borders. Visiting students mainly come to learn English, but by the time they return to their home country they have made life-long friends.

We work with a partner agency, American Home Life International, for many of our placements. If you are interested in becoming an exchange student at Holly Grove, please email the guidance counselor, Christy Scarborough, at
