International Students

Since 1990, our International Student Program has attracted students from around the world to study at Pinewood. We offer small class sizes to provide individualized attention and a rigorous academic curriculum in order to meet the requirements for acceptance into U.S. colleges and universities. Our College Counselor works with each international student to establish a plan to accomplish this goal. We issue I-20 (F1) Visas, and help coordinate host-family accommodations. 

We accept applications to our International Student Program on a year-round basis. Acceptance decisions are based on the student’s academic records, Zoom interview and teacher recommendations. All students must come through an approved exchange agency.

Our international students participate in Pinewood's Fine Arts program - such as Chorus, Music Tech, Art, and Drama; competitive athletics, a strong engineering program, and challenging Honors and AP academic courses. Our graduating international students typically enroll directly into prestigious private and state colleges as well as colleges and universities overseas.
