We are delighted to have your international students join our campus for short term stays. Students from any country are welcome to stay from one week up to one year. Our program is designed to recognize the academic, social, and spiritual needs of each student. These needs are included in the planning process for each student. We want your students to have success in all their experiences at MCA. Specific guidelines and appropriate classes are chosen so international students will experience many good memories of being at Mannahouse Christian Academy, in addition to having improvements in their academics and English Language ability.
