Dear Students,

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our international and regional students on behalf of Pennsylvania International Academy.  We are here to help you and your family adjust to campus life in Erie, Pennsylvania and we will assist you in understanding the regulations governing your stay in the United States.

Mercyhurst Preparatory is a prestigious school and we are happy that you have the discipline, dedication, and drive needed to succeed. 

As a high school student, you have the unique opportunity to have a challenging academic experience with the goal of being accepted into the top colleges and universities, learn the American culture and expand and share your cultural with the local community.

We encourage you to participate in the various club and cultural events that are offered so you will enhance your English speaking skills. Becoming involved will help you become familiar with the American culture and prepare you for college/university life.

Leaving home for an academic experience is an exciting, but sometimes intimidating, process.  We wish to facilitate your adjustment as much as possible and wish you an enjoyable and successful year.
