A team of Grace Academy students and teachers recently spent a month in Korea teaching and assisting at the Eumseong campus of Global Vision Christian School.  

Both schools share the commitment to training young people academically, spiritually and in accordance with their God-given gifts, allowing them to handle the rigors of life.

Five students had an opportunity to travel and learn firsthand about another culture.    

The Grace Academy group was involved in three different camps that were attended by approximately 75 Korean students.

The main goal was to immerse the Korean students in the English language. The students were being prepared to come to America to study and were given cultural lessons on what they can expect.  

Grace student Elizabeth Herman said she loved her experience and was delighted to get to know some of the students who would be attending Grace.

She said she also loved visiting some of the local villages and getting to experience their culture.

Dominique Green and Karla Shank said the highlight of their trip was a powerful contemporary Christian music concert that greatly impacted all in attendance.  

Brielle Groves said she loved building relationships with students and hopes to return to Korea some day.
