  • Who qualifies as an International Student?

    Students who require an F-1 visa to attend PCD and/or require residential services during their time attending PCD are considered International Students. PCD is able to provide I-20 forms to apply for an F-1 visa for students entering grades K-12.

    Please contact the Admission Office for more information.
  • Housing & Agency Affiliation

    Students entering grades K-7 are required to live with a close natural relative; students in grades 8-12 who will not be living with their parents will be required to maintain an agency accredited by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET), who will be responsible for securing safe and appropriate housing arrangements for the student.

    If an applicant does not already have an agency, the PCD Admissions team is happy to share the information of approved agencies that have successfully worked with other students at the school during the application process. Students may NOT have housing facilitated by individuals or agencies that are not CSIET-accredited, and students are required to maintain their approved agency representation throughout their enrollment at PCD.
