Academics

Admissions Criteria

At PAS, admissions decisions are based on a review of each candidate’s demonstrated academic achievement, developmental, social, and behavioral background as well as English language proficiency. Alignment in values and expectations between family and school is also considered.

A completed application does not equate automatic placement. Priority consideration is given to U.S. or second passport holders and those with stronger academic English proficiency. PAS also base its admissions decisions on the balance of English language learners to that of native English speakers to maintain its core quality as an all-English speaking international school.

Interviews are an integral part of the application review process. That said, an interview is not a guarantee of admission.

In addition, students applying to Pacific American School must meet the following eligibility criteria.

K-Grade 2

  • Toilet-trained
  • For kindergarten, strong preference for those already three years old by the first day of the academic school year
  • Foundational English recommended
  • Possible ESL testing for English language learners (Grade 1-2)

Grade 3 -5

  • Standardized ERB test will be administered (fees apply)
  • Possible ESL testing for students whose primary language is not English

Grade 6-10

  • Standardized ERB test will be administered (fees apply)
  • Possible ESL testing for students whose primary language is not English

Grade 11-12

  • Must be English proficient
  • Once students gain admission to PAS, Advanced Placement programs have GPA and/or school prerequisite requirements. The AP is available to all eligible Grade 9 and 12 students enrolled at PAS.

English Proficiency

While PAS prefers students with some to adequate understanding of English, our admissions committee will make that determination upon meeting with the candidate. Non-native English-speaking candidates may be given an additional English test to determine if ESL support is required. If admitted and such support is found to be necessary, additional fees will apply.

Tuition & Fees

Please note: A late payment penalty of 2% will be assessed on any school fee payment that is overdue.
