In addition to our academic program, we offer a vast array of extracurricular activities ranging from volleyball, golf, tennis, cheerleading and soccer, to theater, dance and a choir. Our tuition includes a home stay with a host American family. Our home stay parents are mainly staff or parents of CPCS students who deeply care about the academic and social success of their young guests. In this way, students can become fully immersed in American culture and the American way of life. As international students, most of you will be in the upper grades and will join your American counterparts in sophomore, junior, and senior classes. You will experience the American lifestyle with your new friends, and you will impart your culture to them in a mutually rewarding and beneficial cross-cultural exchange. also affords all students the opportunity to study the Bible and learn more about God s word through a Jesus Christ centered, Christian Bible class program.

Once the application and all other materials and documents have been submitted to CPCS, the Administration carefully reviews each application by evaluating the student s original transcripts which describe coursework completed and grades awarded in each class. These transcripts must be translated so that the Administration may determine the content of each course and the student s level of proficiency. In addition, standardized test scores, teacher remarks, and recommendations are used to evaluate the student s past academic performance. If the Administration determines that the applicant meets the academic requirements for admission, and after all necessary documentation has been submitted to the school, then the student will have an online interview with the Administrator and Dean of Students via Skype. The student takes a comprehensive placement test in English proficiency and mathematics during the first week of classes. Using the test results and in conjunction with the student s past academic coursework, the Administration and classroom teachers determine the course of study which will best meet the student s needs. Students with English proficiency are placed in the college preparatory classes. CPCS does NOT offer language classes to non-english speakers. Any student not able to converse in English should work on those skills and apply in the future. This evaluation process is ongoing. In the admissions process, consideration of applicants is given equally, regardless of race, gender, creed, and national or ethnic origin. Students from all over the world are welcomed and are fully integrated into the Citrus Park family. 8
