Students from around the globe find their place at Crown

What is a TCK?

A Third Culture Kid (or a "TCK") is someone who has lived in another culture other than his or her own and creates a third culture by combining elements of that culture with his or her native culture.

Crown has a growing number of TCKs who have lived all over the world (see the list below). We offer clubs like Mu Kappa to connect you with other TCKs and to promote integration into the larger student body.
