International Student Program Conference

Join us for the International Student Program Conference 2020!

The 11th Annual International Student Program Conference will be held on the campus of Wheaton Academy in the western suburbs of Chicago from October 19-21, 2020. The conference will be a fruitful time of learning and community for attendees and our WA Global Team. Attendees consistently tell us that this conference is not just helpful training but it also creates a community of like-minded program directors who talk and encourage each other throughout the entire year!  We are currently planning for an in person conference but will redesign to be online if needed due to COVID-19. We will make this decision closer to October and partial refunds will be issued should this change occur.
Join other Christian school international program directors, program coordinators, admissions directors, teachers, administrators, and host parents next October. Bring your whole team! You’ll leave INSPIRED by new ideas and insights, EQUIPPED with tools and resources, and CONNECTED to other colleagues in the field to continue the work with international students at your school.
Stay tuned for more information about this year’s conference!

Share your school’s successes & learn best practices

Attend helpful workshop sessions
