We believe that students who will meaningfully impact society throughout their lives need personalized, guided educational experiences that inspire them to explore, to question, and to generate and test their own ideas. Pioneer Academics® offers these experiences.
Our mission is to transcend cultural, geographic and socioeconomic barriers to educational engagement. That’s why we select student cohorts that bring together ideas and perspectives from diverse cultures and geographies. Such peer interaction challenges stereotypes, augments creativity, and heightens students’ awareness of the global community in which we live. Pioneer also transcends socioeconomic barriers by offering verifiable-need-based scholarships to outstanding students. This initiative enables more students to engage in in-depth exploration of their academic interests under the mentorship of thought leaders than would otherwise be possible..
We will improve the current academic culture by creating educational experiences that are inspiring and life-changing, that unlock students’ curiosity and creativity, and that involve international peer engagement encouraging students to challenge preconceived notions and embedded stereotypes.

Considering students have significantly fewer options for their summer enrichment, Pioneer adjusted the cohort size from maximum 5 to maximum 6 so that we can offer the opportunity to more students. Please be aware that Pioneer will only expand cohorts which we feel sure will not be compromised in any way by a slight increase in participation. Some areas, therefore, may stay at a maximum of 5 because the nature of the course requires heavier coaching.
Pioneer admissions still requires the same application materials, but we may adjust the timing in response to current realities. If you can work with your counselor to collect your official transcript and counselor evaluation and submit them soon after you submit your application, it will speed up the process. Pioneer admissions requires an official transcript and counselor evaluation to process applications for the final round. If these items won't be available during the process due to COVID-19, applicants must submit evidence that the school's counseling office is closed. Pioneer admissions will then decide what adjustment shall be granted.
