International Club

Established in 2008, the International Club of Faith West Academy creates awareness of the diverse cultures, languages, and heritages in our school and the local community. Through speakers, movies, events, get-togethers, and parties, the International Club is committed to promoting education, respect, tolerance, and unity among the different nationalities of the student body. This club is open to all students in 9th through 12th grade regardless of their enrollment in a foreign language class.
