An Open Letter to International Educators

By Stephen C. Schultz


Please allow me to share an experience I had at one of the International ICEF Conferences in Montreal. I was speaking with an educator from Canada and she mentioned to me;

“I wish I had known about your services last year. I had a student from China who struggled with an eating disorder. We did all we could to assist her, but she was eventually sent back to China. She was embarrassed, her parents were embarrassed, it was not a good outcome for this girl or her family. Is this the type of student you can help?”

I said, “Absolutely!”



Please feel free to review the below links to learn more about Discovery Academy for teenagers and our short term Medicine Wheel program for young adults age 18-25.  

I have been asked by educators, consultants and agents alike how we might work together. My hope is that we can be seen as a resource when you have a student that needs this level of assistance. We can be a solution focused option for the student and their parents.

Students enter our very specialized academic services through two methods. They come to us on referral from schools or they are recommended by Educational Consultants. The students are generally struggling with academics due to depression, substance use, eating disorders or sexual concerns which consist of abuse, trauma or addiction.

I hope you find this information helpful. Too often students who struggle because of emotional concerns get discouraged and drop out of school. There is an option for these students and their families to have an international boarding school experience without the failure so often associated with the burden of emotional concerns.

We have been certified as an educational campus through SEVIS since 2005 and have been approved to issue Forms I-20 and maintain current F-1/M-1 student records.

Lessons I learned from a childhood experience with bullying

By Stephen C. Schultz The dew around the window was starting to bead up. In a classic case of chaos theory, the little beads of water gave way to gravity and randomly bounced and bumped their way to the window sill like a steal marble in a pinball game. There was a small pool of water in the cracked and peeling beige paint. I sat facing the window, staring at the small engraved stone nestled in the flower beds. There weren’t many flowers at this time of year. Mostly rhododendrons and Oregon grapes reaching skyward from the damp bark mulch that covered the planter area.   The month of January in Eugene Oregon was filled with days and days of mist and fog.   In fact, pretty much from October through June was filled with fog, rain, mist, showers, freezing rain and occasionally snow. The local weathermen didn’t bother with predictions about the chance of precipitation; they took pride in developing new adjectives to describe the type of precipitation and how much you can expect.

"Sugar and Spice" - A Child's Kindness

By Stephen C. Schultz I recall a childhood rhyme that went something like this; “…sugar and spice and everything nice…that’s what little girls are made of!” As the father of three daughters and one son, there is no doubt about the truthfulness of that saying. I was in San Diego a couple of weeks ago with my family. We were down at Seaport Village right on the bay having lunch. It was a beautiful day, sun shining, light breeze and we were eating on an outside deck. We were engaged in a conversation about what we wanted to do later that day when I noticed my youngest daughter, a fifth grader, was focused on something else. So, I turned to see what she was gazing at. She was following the movements of a transient man who had walked up onto the deck and was systematically searching the garbage cans for food. He was looking in each receptacle and reaching in to move the contents around. At one can, his hand came out with a partially eaten sandwich of some kind. He reached back

Perfectly Wicked - A new take on an old fairy tale!

Guest Blogger Amanda Schultz Age 15 There she was…hair as black as night, lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow. Standing by the window, washing dishes, whistling while she worked. Snow White. I shudder with disgust every time I hear her name. What kind of a name is that anyway? “Snow White”. Gahhh, it’s a name that practically begs to be made fun of. Yet, there she goes, frolicking around like she owns the Enchanted Forest. No. I’m the Queen. I’m in charge. My magic mirror was mistaken. I’m the Fairest of them all, not that sorry excuse for a princess. One bite from my poison apple and that air-head will be so ugly not even her mother could love her. And I will be the Fairest once again! I suppose that I should rewind a little bit. It wasn’t always a competition between Snow White and me. In fact, back in the day, we had a nice little system going on. I would rule the kingdom and practice my magic, while Snow did the dishes and tended the garden. She stayed out of my w
