The Ultimate American Education AND Experience
King’s Way Christian School is a non-denominational Christian school located in beautiful Vancouver, Washington just 15 minutes from the Portland International Airport. We’ve served international high school students (Grades 9-12) from around the world for over a decade. King’s Way is a great choice for studying abroad because King’s Way offers AP (Advanced Placement) courses, concurrent college credits, competitive athletics, and other activities. But there’s more!
What makes our school different? King’s Way is not just an education, it’s an all-American inclusive experience! Along with classes and rigorous academic standards, King’s Way has campus community that foster friendships that usher one another toward success. While students will be fully immersed in American life with their host family, King’s Way also provides monthly outings in and around town, such as attending an NBA game, exploring the corn maze at the pumpkin patch, Thanksgiving dinner at the Principal’s home, and Zoo Lights at the Portland Zoo.
Our graduates gain entrance to many prestigious American universities and are influential and confident in their work and their purpose in life.
