Dunham International Student Center (DISC) is opening the world to The Dunham School by bringing cultural opportunities into the classroom. TDS already has one of the strongest foreign language programs in the area, requiring three consecutive years of foreign language. This program is one more chance to show our students the importance of being multi-lingual as they understand firsthand that language is a powerful tool to global outreach.
Under the direction of Rachel Bunch, the long range goal is to grow the program from 2-3 students per year to 15 over the next several years. We hope to have countries from around the world joining our Dunham community. We have had a wonderful response of host families who have opened their homes to these students. The plan is to immerse international students in the values represented at Dunham and to encourage them to be active in more than academics. There will be cultural exchange evenings, sporting events, and worship services, to mention a few of the exciting opportunities we offer our guest students. Because the students plan to stay with Dunham throughout their high school career, they will truly grow with us and become a part of the Dunham family. Pray for DISC as we see God's hand at work in this new ministry.
