Repatriation Packages

Our go! Repatriation Packages provide educational guidance to families repatriating back to their home country from an overseas assignment. The transition home is oftentimes more difficult for the family since it involves reintegrating Third Culture Kids back home, saying good-bye to their host country, and Reverse Culture Shock. 

 

Our packages include a general educational landscape, identifying curriculum differences between the home and host country, highlighting education gaps, providing resources for those gaps (tutoring not included), and providing a list of appropriate schools for the family. 

Repatriation Package A:
Curriculum Gaps, Local School Options with “The Comeback Kids” White Paper 

 

Package may include:

  • Discussion and overview of local educational landscape (individual schools not discussed) 

  • Phone intake with the family

    • Where their students left off with their home country curriculum

    • Current curriculum

    • Grade level(s)

    • If they are currently receiving academic support or tutoring 

  • Review of transcripts for the last 2 years (current and the year before) to review classes and courses taken

  • Determine Curriculum differences:

    • Between curricula and how they relate to the host and home country. 

    • Identifying education gaps to determine if academic support is needed upon returning to their public school

    • We may determine if grade level tests are needed (oftentimes when aligning curriculum, a student may be ahead in some subjects but behind in others)

  • Tutoring assessment:

    • If a student is currently receiving academic support in their host country, they may need support in their home country. This particular support is usually not seen as a result from curriculum differences or due to a transition to an international assignment.

    • We may also make recommendations about whether the student may need to take a particular course(s) or need schooling support/tutoring upon their repatriation to their home country schools.

      • Gaps such as an older child needing to take U.S. History or Health to graduate from a U.S. high school are examples of tutoring or classes that may be needed.

      • If academic support or remediation is needed to align curricula and fill coursework gaps (tutoring). Tutoring resources available. 

  • General analysis of local school options:

    • School districts and other schools may be discussed

    • A list of schools may be provided as a blueprint for the family

    • Determine if standardized testing are required
