PEDUS is delighted to announce our 2019 International Elite Academy at the Lawrenceville School program! IEALS is a unique program for international students who would like to immerse in the U.S. culture, English language and U.S. high school education. In addition to that, students also have the opportunity to interact with experienced and highly qualified faculty members from the school.
With various courses offered during two summer sessions, International Elite Academy provides you with more than academic improvement; it gives you the opportunity to study at one of the nation’s most prestige private schools.
One-hour drive from the historical city Philadelphia, Lawrenceville locates in central New Jersey. During the camp, students will have the chance to visit Washington DC, New York City, Princeton and Philadelphia.
Through different camp activities and excursions, we look forward to create a very dynamic and exciting experience for the students. Campers will enjoy The Lawrenceville School campus, between and after classes, by playing sports, reading in the library and making new friends.
