International Student Admissions
Welcome to Judson!
We are so glad that you are interested in Judson International School. Our wonderful K-12 Christian school has a unique focus of being both global and Christ-centered. Born as a school for the staff of Frontier Ventures almost 30 years ago, our school has quickly expanded to include children from our surrounding communities, as well as children of visiting missionaries and students from countries around the world. Judson school is known for being a friendly community where students love to learn. Many of our teachers have served overseas. Our steps for international admissions are listed below.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to help!
