Summit Christian Academy (SCA) International Director Kathy Tharp and International Department Intern Senior Mackenzie Madsen were honored recently to record a webinar for the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) on Developing International Student Relationships Through a Buddy Program.  

Previously, Mrs. Tharp had been invited by Dr. Erin Wilcox of ACSI to do an International Student Program endorsement, during which Dr. Wilcox learned of SCA’s Buddy Program. This initiated the request for SCA to create the interview-type webinar that is now offered through ACSI’s International Student Program Service. SCA’s International Program and Buddy Program has several unique aspects including a Buddy Coordinator and Intern, Language Cadets, and offering a Seal of Biliteracy for both American and International Students. 

“It was an honor for SCA to share specifics about our program to encourage other schools around the country,” shared SCA International Director Kathy Tharp.


SCA is currently in their tenth year of offering an International Program and hosts eight International Students from countries including England, Peru, China, and South Korea.
