Professional Children's School is proud to have a geographically diverse student body. In a typical school year, PCS will have students from a dozen different countries and from 15 to 18 U.S. states.

Applying to PCS

Applying to PCS from another country is very similar to applying from the U.S.
Applicants who are not able to be in New York before the start of the academic year must arrange for a Skype interview.  Please contact Shari Honig at to arrange an in-person or Skype interview.

Once your application materials are complete, they will be presented to the Admissions Committee for review. You will be notified in writing of the committee's decision.

Once You Are Accepted

You will receive an acceptance letter along with an enrollment contract and an I-20 request form.  Parents or Guardians of the student must sign the enrollment contract and submit it to PCS with:
  • $2,000 deposit and $350 International Student Fee
  • I-20 Request form
  • copy of the ID page from the student's passport
  • proof of finances (bank statement, letter of sponsorship, etc.)

Obtaining a Visa

The Department of Immigration allows Professional Children's School to issue Certificates of Eligibility (I-20 forms) for Non-Immigrant students who will be enrolled in a full-time academic program. MORE INFORMATION

Tuition and Fees

International Students follow the same tuition and fee structure as all students who attend the school.  There is an additional $350 non-immigrant student processing fee.

Tuition Aid

All students at Professional Children's School may apply for tuition assistance once they have been accepted for admission to the school.  Tuition Aid applications may be accessed at TADS.
