Traders Point Christian Schools challenges and educates students within the framework of a biblical worldview while leading them to a transformed life in Jesus Christ. We provide unique opportunities for academic achievement through distinct programming which includes our Schools Within a School model, hands-on learning through Project Lead the Way, and dual credit courses. International students gain a higher level of English proficiency through participation in our English as a New Language class (ENL). While in the US, our international students are hosted by a current TPCS family where they will be welcomed and well cared for throughout their stay.

Interested in being a host family?
Traders Point Christian Schools is proud to offer an international program for students from across the globe. One of the best ways to support TPCS and our mission is to host an international student who is attending Traders Point. Not only are host families following Christ's command to "go into all the world and proclaim the gospel" (Mk 16:15), but they receive tremendous blessing through this special relationship. We seek host homes from among the school or Traders Point Christian Church families for international students in grades 7-12.
International students enroll for a full academic year, arriving in late July or early August, and attend through the following May. Their home countries may be anywhere but are usually Asia, South America, or Europe.
For more information about hosting an international student, contact Mrs. Mindy Johnson, Director of International Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-769-2450.
"Our family had never given much thought about hosting an international student until we heard from a close friend that 2 students were in need of host families. Our new son is teaching us so much about his culture and he has truly become a member of our family. We are so glad we took a leap of faith and said yes to hosting."
