Program Overview


Kennedy Catholic’s International Program aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Facilitate an understanding of and respect for the United States and other world cultures
  • Transition students from EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classes into Kennedy Catholic regular-academic courses
  • Prepare students for continued and future academic success at universities throughout the world

These goals are achieved through the presentation of academic content and a focus upon the four language skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

English as a Foreign Language
Kennedy Catholic offers a special EFL curriculum for international students who need help in English language skills (speaking, reading, writing, and listening) with levels appropriate to their abilities and needs. Full credit is granted for successful completion of all EFL courses. International students will be placed into one of three areas of course studies based on the results of the Kennedy Catholic International Assessment.
