BURUNDIAN DIPLOMAT’S DAUGHTER: Lucie.
here does a Burundian diplomat’s daughter who has lived in four different countries go to school? Or the son of an American and Argentine who grew up in the Philippines? Or what about the son of the first Korean Adventist pastor to officially serve the church in Africa? Where does he go to complete his secondary education?
SCHOOL CAMPUS: Maxwell’s picturesque campus boasts beautiful foliage, acacia trees, and wildlife.
More important than natural beauty, however, Maxwell provides an environment that allows its students to feel accepted there. Erik, for example—the Argentine-American referred to in the opening paragraph—moved to the Philippines when he was 8 years old after splitting his short life equally between Argentina and the United States. Five years later, Erik and his family had a decision to make: Where should he go to high school? America, the country of his mother but a place he hardly remembers? Argentina, the country of his father but where Erik’s lack of educational background in Spanish would be a problem? The Philippines, his host country but where he doesn’t fit in as a native? For Erik, Maxwell was the right choice. Here he can be himself and be accepted.
SON OF KOREAN ADVENTIST PASTOR:
Maxwell is truly a unique place. In an attempt to cater to the diversifying needs of the student body, it has adopted a curriculum to prepare its students for further education anywhere in the world. In order to accomplish this goal, the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) curriculum is being offered for the first two years of the secondary program. If a student successfully passes the IGCSE examination, they will be equipped for further education in the United Kingdom or in Europe. When they complete four years at Maxwell, they receive an accredited American (college preparatory) diploma that is accepted at colleges and universities in the United States and many other parts of the world.
A cross-cultural atmosphere and solid academics are only part of the picture at Maxwell. The most important objective is Christ-centered spiritual development. Daily Bible classes for all students, a deeply committed staff, and a wide variety of service opportunities help to make Maxwell a place where Christian values are ingrained as a way of life.
