International Students (Grades 7-10)
Pinewood is a welcoming community comprised of students and faculty from diverse corners of our world. Our international students experience a friendly, inclusive atmosphere among their peers, instructors, and administration.
Pinewood is a day school and does not issue I-20 visas to international students. Our school accepts a limited number of international students who are interested in joining our community between seventh and tenth grades with the expectation that they will stay a minimum of two years. Pinewood does not provide boarding facilities or host families; all international students must reside with at least one parent.
English proficiency is of the utmost importance for an international student's success as Pinewood’s curriculum relies heavily on reading, writing and speaking English.
It is unlikely that a non-native speaker will be admitted to Pinewood without having completed a minimum of one year at an English-speaking school. Pinewood does not provide language-learning support.
Parents are expected to participate in their child’s school experience by attending academic progress/college counseling meetings and athletic/performing/visual arts events.
All international applicants must visit the school in-person; Pinewood does not conduct interviews via video or teleconference.
