Testimonials from International Students
Jing (China)Jing joined Calvary for two years and graduated with the Calvary Schools of Holland class of 2011.
“I really enjoyed the two years that I was at Calvary Schools of Holland. The teachers and students created an environment that is so kind, selfless and pure. Because of this, it made my transition from China to America so much easier. (Calvary Schools) has helped to shape me into the person I am today.”
Amber (Netherlands)“At first, the idea of living with a host family was scary. But, I couldn’t ask for a better family! The Seaborns are my American family. They did so much for me. You really develop a special relationship with your host family. They will not be a for-the-timebeing-guardians, but they will become part of your own family.”
Camila (Brazil)“The school is small, and it makes it easier to make friends. Mrs. DeJong, my English teacher, helped me a lot with improving my English. I really loved my host family, they were so good to me and helped me a lot. I still talk with them often.”
Anna (Germany)“Calvary was the best experience I could have ever had! I love the people. The small atmosphere at the school is awesome. The people are really friendly and helpful. I loved the classes, PowerPlus and worshipping God at our Wednesday chapel. I really enjoyed volunteering in the community through PowerPlus and helping people in need. I loved living with my host family because I felt like part of their family.”
Yujiao (China)Yujiao joined Calvary for two years and graduated with the Calvary Schools of Holland class of 2011.
“PowerPlus was a great experience. I feel safe to share everything that was going on (in my life) with my group. I look back at how much I have done to help others (through this program), and I am proud of my school and myself. I continue to serve even now while I am at college. I had a great experience with my host family, I stayed with them for two years, and I still visit them. They are my family, and I really love them.”
