In this spirit, Forest Lake Academy (FLA) welcomes qualified international students from around the world to join our Home Stay/dorm boarding program. Our unique, holistic and immersive program creates a community where international and American students experience intellectual, social and spiritual growth together.
Our program is designed to ensure student success at both the high school and university levels.
At FLA, international students attend classes with their American peers in an immersive English environment. We offer an ELL academic enrichment program for students who desire a stronger foundation in the English language.
In addition to a rigorous high school curriculum, FLA offers a number of honors-level and dual enrollment classes in conjunction with Adventist Health Sciences University.
Almost all of our international students desire university admission. We provide each student with support throughout the college application process. Graduates of FLA's international program have gone on to attend universities all over the United States.
Our program is also designed to ensure international students feel supported, enriched and at home during their time with us.
Through shared experiences and activities, students living in our dorm enjoy enhanced personal and social growth at an important time in their lives. A variety of clubs and student organizations are available to keep students engaged and connected to peers outside of the classroom.
Monthly meetings with members of our international department provide students with a regular source of guidance and support. Home Stay or host families provide another link to local culture and community, and will care for students during home leaves (once a month), vacation breaks, emergencies and illnesses.
