Supporting your son or daughter throughout the transition from high school to university is critical for their success. For a student that’s living internationally, this is a huge milestone.
The number of English-language international schools is growing rapidly around the world.
National schools may be a great option for some families, especially those desiring to adapt as much as possible to local culture and language.
Sometimes the best option for families living internationally is to educate their child at home. Home education, also known as homeschooling, can range from highly structured to a completely unstructured approach to educating children at home using a curriculum selected to meet the needs and educational philosophy of the family.
Families raising a child with special needs while living internationally face an incredible challenge. Not only are they navigating another culture, and all of the transitions and adjustments associated with that, they also are caring for a child that requires extra support.
More than 258 million people — or 1 in 30 people — now live outside of their passport country. And projections indicate that about 405 million people will be living internationally by 2050.
