LDi and iSC Support Services


iSC Odyssey 

The LDi Youth Retreat ran November 13-16 in Shanghai. Students had a great time searching out dragon eggs in a “Capture the Flag”-style game in Century Park, and then exploring the downtown area both around and across from the Bund. Many students’ highlight was the day spent under magical blue skies in Shanghai Disneyland. Students went around the park in small groups, exploring rides and shows and how to get one’s photo taken with Captain Jack Sparrow or Snow White or Mickey Mouse.

In addition to the staff who spoke to high school, we also appreciate the high school students who shared with middle school during a time of mentoring and sharing their rich life experiences. LDi parents: you have some AMAZING kiddos! Thanks for sharing them with us for those days.
