Third Culture Kids (or TCKs for short) are children who have moved from one country to another (or several) during their developmental years. Children that are integrated into new cultures and societies intheir early years have experiences that will have an enduring impact on them for the rest of their lives. Adaptable, flexible, open-minded and resilient are a few of the words that I often use to describe our students at ACS Hillingdon, many of which are TCKs.
