MINIMAL ENGLISH PROFICIENCY OR LOW TOEFL SCORESRedemption Christian Academy (RCA) has successfully educated international students since 1994 through its Cultural Learning Immersion Program (CLIP). Over the past two decades, there have been numerous occasions where international students arrived on campus with minimal English skills. Within a short period of time, students acquired functional English speaking skills. By the end of the academic year, these students have usually transitioned into regular classes on their grade level.
Redemption Christian Academy's family atmosphere provides a nurturing and supportive environment for students. Those with minimal English proficiency are placed in remedial classes. In addition, they receive tutoring. Students are culturally immersed by typically having an English speaking roommate. They are encouraged to speak "English only" both during classes and in the presence of any person who does not share their native language. Teachers individually monitor the student's progress and provide additional tutoring and support where needed.
