International Student Program

DCA International Student Program


The DCA International Student Program allows students from around the world to finish their high school experience in the United States with the intention of enrolling in an American college or university. A major strength of DCA's program is our partnership with host families. Living in an American household improves English fluency, enriches the cultural and curricular education, and allows the student to experience a loving, Christian home. DCA partners each year with mission-minded families to host students and welcome them into their homes and families. For more information about the DCA International Student program, please contact Alice Prentice at 615-577-1212 or
