  PAX works in partnership with educational organizations around the world to identify suitable exchange participants, to screen and interview them, and provide students with a pre-departure orientation. Most of the students are adequate to manage in a US high school, and appropriate maturity and motivation. Most of the students are between the ages of 15-18 and come from over 70 different countries representing Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.
  Currently PAX is looking to find another host family for a student to attend Shortridge for the 2014-15 school year. This organization would like to confirm the placement ASAP. The student will arrive in late July/early August and depart in June 2015.

Naturalization Ceremony Hosted by Shortridge
american-flag-wavy.jpg

Shortridge was chosen for the second year to host a Naturalization Ceremony on May 1 in the William E. McAnulty, Jr. Public Policy Center (courtroom) on May 1. The US Federal District Courts hold approximately 30 Naturalization Ceremonies a year in Indianapolis. Of these, only five are conducted in locations other than the federal court house. Shortridge is honored to be one of those host sites.
  The ceremony was attended by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, and several other dignitaries representing local, state, and federal offices. The proceedings were presided over by Judge James K. Coachys, US Federal Bankruptcy Court. The Crispus Attucks JROTC was involved in presenting the American flag to National Anthem performed by the Shortridge Wind Ensemble. The Shortridge Chamber Ensemble played the prelude to the ceremony. Our law enforcement class and cadets, Thin Blue Line, were on hand to provide secured escorts for our guests.
