Our School Link program places international students in U.S. private high schools. It is designed specifically so that students will have a rewarding experience that helps them to grow and mature into successful people of good character. Not only do we help students get into top American high schools, we journey with them through their high school years towards a bright future.
Our goal is to build the next generation of global leaders.
Leaders who act out of character; leaders who impact their communities.
We focus on Mission, Character and Service.
The last critical element in Pacific Link’s High School Program is the ongoing relationship between our organization, the parents in Asia and the U.S. High School. A relationship based on trust and respect among partners will alleviate any conflict or tension that may arise.

Navigating Through the High School Years Requires Wisdom. Let us help.
Over the past 5-10 years, thousands of students from Asia have been coming to the United States so that they can attend American high school. They do this so that they are more likely to be accepted to top U.S. universities. Likewise, hundreds of American high schools are eagerly welcoming these students to enroll and become a part of their academic communities.
Linking students with the right high school in the United States is just the beginning. Pacific Link recognizes that even after arriving at the high school, there are many other areas in which students and the high schools can benefit from in a partner organization like ours. Here’s how we help . . .
