Why Pacifica Christian High School?

Pacifica Christian High School is a liberal arts high school devoted to teaching young men and women to think critically and wisely, instilling heartfelt joy and interest in learning, while encouraging lives of faith, character, and service to the glory of God.

We are located in the heart of Santa Monica, less than 20 blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Santa Monica offers more than its beach and year round warm, sunny weather. Its proximity to the greater Los Angeles areas, like Malibu, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills, makes Santa Monica the perfect base for international students to explore Southern California.

International students at Pacifica Christian High School will be challenged and cared for by their teachers, counselors, and coaches in an environment that teaches you to think and live well.

How to apply

Pacifica Christian High School has partnered with The Cambridge Institute of International Education to ensure the best possible international program. The Cambridge Institute’s international student program prepares students for life abroad prior to arriving at Pacifica and continues to provide international students with on-going support throughout the school year. International students coming from China must work with The Cambridge Institute to apply to Pacifica.

You are welcome to host a student for one or two semesters, but there is also the possibility of choosing to host again the following year. The students typically study in the United States with the intention of graduating from an American high school. Host families receive a monthly stipend to cover any costs that arise with having an extra person in their home. Host families also have access to ongoing support from a local Residential Coordinator.
