Victory Christian Academy Foreign Student Program
Thank you for your interest in our foreign student program which was established in 2003 by Pastor Anthony and Barbara Seaton, principle founders of Victory Church of God and Victory Christian Academy.
Coming from another culture is an experience that is not foreign to Pastor Seaton who journeyed from another country to the United States where he achieved a Master of Science degree in Counseling. With a desire to give back to those who are responsible for the achievements in his life, he and his wife Barbara, who also has a Master of Science degree in Education, ventured to create an avenue by which individuals could achieve similar experiences.
Victory Christian Academy believes that both mentoring and apprenticeship are essential compoents in every sphere of life for the development of character and a successful education. These afford us the opportunity to bring positive change to our lives, schools, communities, nations and world.
Hence, the Foreign Student Program transfers these principles to our guest students who hail from countries all over the world such as South Korea and China. As the global landscape shrinks with advanced technological innovations, students--both international and native-born--learn rich lessons in God-glorifying cooperation, cultural diversity, and intellectual stimulation, prividing young people with the opportunity to meet people from other lands, to experience their culture and plant seeds for a lifetime ofinternational understanding.
Students and host families who participate in this program find that the exchange places them in life-changing situations which challenge their thinking, expand their educational and personal experiences, and encourage them to take risks and reap the rewards of doing so.
