Founded in 2012, Pioneer is dedicated to empowering future leaders through intriguing and challenging learning opportunities. Pioneer’s social mission is to transcend cultural, geographic and socioeconomic barriers to educational engagement.
Pioneer Academics’ Research Journal is not about getting students’ work published. It is a showcase of some of the best research conducted across multiple disciplines. Approximately 2% of works are selected through a double-blind review by a multi-disciplinary panel of over 40 faculty.
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.
