What is an international school?
People often ask us, "What is an international school?" In our 27 year history, Judson has always had a global focus. Our school began as a school for children of the staff of Frontier Ventures, formerly the U.S. Center for World Mission. As such, we have always had a focus on reaching out to all nations of the world. Several years after its founding, Judson opened its doors to students beyond our campus and then to students from around the world. Our unique curriculum, the International Christian Curriculum, focuses on integrating global history throughout our learning.
While the majority of our student body are local American students, we have students from almost twenty different countries in attendance, most of whom are fluent in English. For English Language Learners (ELL), we have an excellent English Development program including professionally trained teachers who prepare ELL students for the regular classroom. Judson students learn to appreciate, understand and develop friendships with fellow students from around the world. At Judson, students truly experience that the gospel is for every tongue and tribe and nation and people.
Our student body is ethnically diverse:
African American 7%
Pacific Islander 3%
While the majority of our 2018-19 student body is from the U.S., our students and staff represent over 20 nations:
