Abstract: A family emigrating with their school-age children to a foreign country faces a task as important as finding a job and a place to stay: that of enrolling their children in school. This article analyzes the experiences that families which have emigrated from Lithuania with their children have had in finding schools and learning in them. It is the author’s contention that for Lithuanian immigrant families establishing themselves in a new land the school performs the function of a mediator between the broader society, the neighborhood (or the Lithuanian ethnic community), and the family. The school becomes a mirror of the new country’s cultural and social norms and values, and at the same time it serves as a bridge to a successful and ever more complete integration into that country’s society
