Oak in Korea
Three principals of Oak International schools visit Seoul


Seoul, South Korea - Three principals of Oak Academies visited Korea for a week in November, in order to develop team work with Regnum Christi members in Korea and to promote Oak International Academies for Korean students and parents. 

There are 4 Oak programs in the US, offering one year of English immersion for middle school students. Javier Valenzuela of Oaklawn Academy (Wisconsin), Valerie McGovern of Overbrook Academy (Rhode Island), and Patricia Cantú of Everest International Program (Michigan) met with 60 prospective Korean families who are interested in Catholic education in the US for their children.

They also spoke with current Oak parents to update them on their children’s progress in school. The parents were glad to meet the principals in person, as many of them had only ‘met’ long distance. Currently, six Korean boys are attending Oaklawn,

six girls are attending Overbrook, and one girl is attending the Everest program in Michigan. To date, 87 Korean students have attended Oak International Academies, either as full-year students or for brief programs.  

Meeting with the families – both present families of Oak students and those who are considering the program – helped the principals to understand the strong interest in Korea for education abroad, and will hopefully lead to even greater teamwork between the program directors and RC members in Korea.
