International Students

We enthusiastically welcome international students into our community. In our family atmosphere, international students are warmly embraced and immersed in St. Pius X - St. Matthias Academy's academic and social culture. International students are a vital part of the St. Pius X - St. Matthias Academy community.

They participate in all aspects of the community life, from the classroom where they receive and excellent college preparatory education, to the stage where they act in our musical and dramatic productions, to the sports field where they participate in sports, to our innovative technology program where they create and innovate, and much more.

Furthermore, they do this in a caring and disciplined environment where their individual worth and development are foremost in the minds of the school's faculty, administration and staff. 

We offer a specialized support program for all international students. This program was designed knowing that our international students are far from their homes and families, are living in a new culture, and will be studying in a new language. We work closely with the professional placement organizations with how we partner to ensure successful admission, placement, orientation, and progress. Our program includes orientation, individualized mentoring, a specialized after school tutoring program, and specialized reports sent home to family. 

We look forward to working with you!
