CHICAGO, June 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2019-2020 admission season for international students into American Private Schools is moving into the final months. According to IIE, the number of international high school students studying in America has more than tripled since the fall of 2004. Private catholic schools are attracting more international students for their excellent performance in academic and moral standards.
Private Catholic schools are not only a preferred choice among domestic families but also becoming a top choice for international students
Currently, more than two-thirds of private high schools in the United States are catholic schools and they are well-known to be prestigious and offer top notch academic and extracurricular programs. Compared with non-religious schools, the school style of catholic schools is relatively "rigorous", because the school uses religious concepts and management models to regulate student learning or behavior. In addition, because of their religious beliefs, most teachers and students are generally friendly and helpful in dealing with people and things, and they are more accepting to students from different backgrounds. Amerigo believes that international students can easily adjust to new environment in such a supportive and caring atmosphere.
Religious belief follow a set of "voluntary principles"
One Amerigo student from Russia said that before he entered into Amerigo campuses, he had worries about whether studying in a Catholic school would have conflicts with his own belief. After one-year studying, he said there should not be any worries because there are no restrictions on the religious background of students. And each staffs and students respect the idea of freedom of religions.
In addition, the student said that taking religious classes helped him to better understand western history, culture, art and social changes of the ancient western world. The so-called religious curriculum, in fact, is similar to a course integration on history of world civilization and western ideology which helps international students build a thorough understanding of American society in a holistic way.
Currently, all ten campuses from Amerigo are Catholic High Schools. Besides its advanced facilities, each campus also is made up of first-class teachers. In addition, Amerigo emphasizes the importance of cultivating students' well-being and personal growth in and out of the classroom, and helping students to successfully enter the ideal top university in the United States.
