International Student Program | Plymouth Christian Academy

Plymouth Christian Academy welcomes students from all cultures around the world to participate in our International Student Program. We are committed to providing a caring and supportive environment that will help prepare international students to successfully achieve their educational goals.

Established in 1976, Plymouth Christian Academy is located on a beautiful, 45-acre campus in Canton, Michigan. PCA has a rich and respected history as an excellent Christian private school characterized by an integrated Christian worldview, academic rigor, a rich fine arts program, a competitive athletic program, and a variety of leadership and service opportunities.


We offer a dual-enrollment program with surrounding colleges and universities as well as many Advanced Placement courses. Graduates of Plymouth Christian Academy are enrolled in highly competitive universities around the country.

International student admission to PCA is open to academically qualified students who are seeking a nurturing Christian atmosphere. We accept students of all races, nationalities and ethnic origins. Plymouth Christian Academy issues I-20 status to students who meet all general admissions requirements for the program.

Additionally, our International Homestay Program matches students with English-speaking, Christian families who provide housing, support, and help students acclimate to the language and culture in a nurturing environment.
