Cross-Cultural Kids

CRICS Students are Cross-Cultural Kids

Cross-Cultural Kids (CCKs) are children who grow up among many cultural environments for any reason.  (http://www.crossculturalkid.org/)

We encourage our students, parents, and teachers to understand some of the key strengths and challenges of cross-cultural kids.

Here are some tools for navigating the years together.
