Bloomington Christian welcomes students from all around the world. Over the years, students from China, Spain, Vietnam, Thailand, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, and Korea have become part of the Raven family.
We offer an academically challenging program that prepares students for success in universities across the globe. Students complete A-G curriculum requirements that American universities expect their applicants to have mastered.
Bloomington Christian uses an online grade reporting system called ParentsWEB so families can easily access homework, attendance, and grades. The ParentsWEB system also allows families to communicate with teachers via email and stay up-to-date on their student's progress.
Through strong academic curriculum and stimulating extracurricular activities, Bloomington Christian international students are prepared to enter the world of higher education and competitive career markets. College prep courses, resource programs, and after school enrichment help students adjust to American coursework taught in English while social activities like clubs, dances, and sports help students connect with American students.

At Bloomington Christian, we believe a student should use his or her education to learn about the world and glorify God in all areas of life. We offer students the opportunity to go on mission trips and educational excursions to broaden their experiences and give them a better understanding of the diverse world God has created. Many of our international students have participated on these trips and gained valuable experiences,
12 students went to Mexico to build houses.
5 students went to Washington D.C. to tour the nation's capital.
9 students went to China to visit Bloomington Christian sister schools.
18 students went to England and France for a WWII tour.
Previous trips have also included locations like New York, Philadelphia, and Sacramento.
International students are welcome to try out for our award winning teams. Joining a sport is a great chance for international students to develop themselves physically and mentally. Athletes at Bloomington Christian are held to high standards and international students would benefit from the friendship and camaraderie that sports teams nurture.
We offer CIF football, volleyball, baseball, basketball, softball, soccer, and cheerleading.
Bloomington Christian is always looking to build a network of loving Christian homes. Our international students stay with host families to fully immerse themselves in the American experience. Our host families are compensated monthly. We also have options for short term hosting for groups that come throughout the year for 2 to 6 week visits.
If hosting is something that is interesting to you, please email Kim Smith, our international director to complete an application and schedule a home visit.
