International Students

For decades MLS has welcomed international students from a variety of countries and almost every continent. While at MLS, international students experience a broad interaction with American culture in everyday life and through prearranged events. Along with the benefits of the strong academic curriculum at MLS, international students have both formal and informal opportunities to grow in their knowledge of the English language and to grow in their Christian faith.
