Kennedy Catholic’s virtual office in Korea

Kennedy Catholic High School goes the extra mile to connect with international parents and support them through our Country Coordinators. Esther Park joined Kennedy Catholic in January 2019 as Country Coordinator for Korea. Her primary role is to help build upon a strong Lancer family and alumni network, and invite new Korean students to be a part of this community. With Esther's help as a liaison, our Korean student population has grown substantially. She has been effective in making personal connections with students and parents both here in Seattle and in Korea. Parents can communicate with her in their own language and get updated on their students’ activities and academic progress.  

 

Recruiting students in Korea

When she’s not traveling in Korea, Esther helps facilitate networking among local families.  She checks in with our students’ parents and learns about both challenges and successes for their children. She also participates in new international student orientation and greets students at the airport! This personalized and bi-lingual support offers the best learning environment, and aids new students in improving their English skills faster, which then helps them to better acclimate to the campus community and life in the United States.

 

Thank you, Esther, for your dedication to this community!
