Seventeen international students currently are attending Scecina on visas. They come from seven different countries and four continents.

“During the pandemic, it has been difficult for students to travel abroad as they have been able to in the past,” said John Hegarty, director of international student program.

“We at Scecina are very happy that we have been able to welcome 17 for first semester and are excited about welcoming all of them back for second semester as well as some additional students. We currently have applicants for second semester from, Rwanda, Vietnam, and Argentina.”

The international students all stay with host families in the Scecina community. Many host families are families of current Scecina students or parents of alumni of Scecina. Scecina welcomes any family recruited and vetted by our partner agencies. Any family who may be interested in hosting should contact Mr. Hegarty, who will share your contact information with one of our partner agencies. The partner agencies are the recruiter and representative of the natural parents and to whom the host families are responsible.  Contact Mr. Hegarty: jhegarty@scecina.org or 317-258-5159.
