Peninsula Catholic High School provides opportunities for students from all over the world. Primarily students from China and Korea along with some other countries have chosen Peninsula Catholic as their four year high school experience. International students have many options when choosing their stay in the US.

At PC international students are fully integrated in the student community. They follow the PC curriculum and dress code; however, accommodations may be made based on individual circumstances. International students have the full advantage of working with counselors, faculty, and staff members to help them acclimate to life and school in the US. 

Peninsula Catholic also offers two unique programs, ESL and Introduction to Catholicism. ESL classes consist of a three tier system based on skill level, and are separated into two sections: academic ESL and social ESL.
