International Student Program

Citrus Park Christian School offers international students an excellent education in an American college preparatory high school. Students from around the globe will benefit from an American education at CPCS , and will also enjoy staying with host families and experiencing everyday life in America. We invite you to take a closer look at the wonderful opportunities we offer to students to gain a superb education and a great cultural experience in the beautiful state of Florida. We offer international students an opportunity to come to the United States and benefit from an authentic American high school experience while studying toward their high school diplomas. CPCS is a first-rate college preparatory school offering a wide range of regular and advanced courses for students who wish to be accepted into the college or university of their choice. 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 accommodations fee 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. Citrus Park Christian School 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. The mission of CPCS is to glorify God in all that we do. We strive to teach all students, both local and international, that they must demonstrate excellence at every level of academic, athletic, and artistic involvement. They must also develop strength of character and learn to serve their global community as servant leaders for Christ.

Citrus Park Christian School is located in the quaint, lovely but bustling city of Tampa and is centrally located on the Florida “Sun Coast,” close to beautiful beaches, famous theme parks, museums, and professional sports venues. Tampa Bay features the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg and is served by Tampa International Airport. Accomplished tennis players and novices alike will enjoy playing on our tennis teams during the spring semester. We also field school soccer teams and American football teams in scholastic leagues. All our students are encouraged to play sports, and you too can “make the team” at CPCS! Our academic programs yield a 100% college acceptance rate, and over 70% of our graduates receive scholarships! We are accredited by the prestigious Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS), and by the Middle States Association. You can expect one of the finest college preparatory experiences available anywhere in America in an atmosphere that fully respects and celebrates the diversity you, as international students, bring to our school. Come join our international family of students and become part of a great school!
