Student Admissions


Pioneer Schools International welcomes the opportunity to share your students’ academic preparation with you. PSI was founded in 1975, and has been a (charter) member of Associated Christian Schools International (ACSI) since our inception. We are proud to be approved by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), as well.

On-site, you will find SAT preparation available, with appropriate college counseling. Our goal is for every student graduating from our high school program to be prepared for a high level of college and university work.

We encourage our students to strive for excellence, and offer Honors classes for those wishing to achieve at a more rigorous level of study.

PSI is authorized by the United States Government to accept international students. All interviews and final acceptance for enrollment are approved by PSI. It is the responsibility of the international student/family to secure the proper visa to attend a school in the United States of America. Students who request an I-20 are required to pay the full year’s tuition, registration and other fees, before the registration process is considered complete and in order for the student to begin instruction.

Financial assistance is not available for international students.

Should a student/family choose not to attend PSI, or if a visa is denied for any reason prior to the start date of the school term, the student will be dropped from SEVIS. The tuition, minus any application and entrance fees, will be refunded. However, if a student withdraws from the school at any time during the school year they will not receive a refund of any funds paid. A student with more than 15% absence rate will be dropped from the school and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be notified that the student is no longer enrolled in PSI, and the I-20 will be revoked at that time.

International students wishing to attend PSI must include with the application forms a letter from a responsible parent or guardian in California who is assuming responsibility for the student while enrolled here. A copy of all transcripts (interpreted) from the previous school, immunization records, and a recent physical examination performed by a doctor or equivalent must also be included with the application forms.

Our location in beautiful Anaheim, California, close to many of the world’s most impressive natural and man-made attractions, art museums and sports facilities, and our amazing weather make attending our school an even more enjoyable experience for students, in every sense.

We look forward to working with you, in helping to educate your student to achieve his or her full potential in life, globally.
