Passport to School is a half day (9 am to Noon) program for newly arrived international children (K through 12th grade) having arrived after June 1, 2024 to prepare them to enter the public school system and succeed. We have daily classes on ESL and phonics, cultural adjustment, math, reading skills, and take a mid morning snack break and teach typical classroom behaviors that will help children adjust easier. We aim to make learning interesting and fun and interesting. Teachers are trained with many being current or former public school teachers, and our staff are dedicated to your children's best interests. Your children must be present everyday unless they are sick or have a test at Columbia Public Schools
We charge $25. for each child ( on the first day of classes with checks made payable to "Interface Ministries" or cash) and you will need to register by clicking the link below.
Passport to School will be held in the International Friends Center in Suite 1900 of University Place Apts (1205 University Ave. , Columbia, MO 65201, www.ifcolumbia.org)
