Greenwood Christian Academy welcomes international students at the high school level. We accept diploma-seeking students (F-1) as well as one year study-abroad students (J-1).

International Boarding Philosophy

  • We believe that international students living with American families will create a much better educational environment and provide more social and emotional support for the student than a boarding dorm.
  • Host families are carefully chosen by Greenwood Christian Academy after a background and reference check along with personal interviews.
  • Orientation and ongoing support is provided for both host families and international students.


  • GCA is accredited by the state of Indiana.
  • GCA also belongs to the IHSAA.
