Welcome to Pechersk School International Kyiv!

We are proud of our motto, A Place Where We Belong. Now in our 24th year, PSI is a welcoming and vibrant international school, educating approximately 450 students from about 46 countries around the world. PSI promotes collaboration between students, parents, teachers and staff.

Mission & Vision

Our Mission: Pechersk School International is a diverse learning community, which provides an academically challenging programme in a student centred environment. As an IB World School, PSI is committed to developing well rounded, global citizens by promoting personal excellence in the classroom and beyond.

Our Vision: We grow. We lead. We succeed.

Governance & Accreditation

Founded by parents, PSI is now governed by twelve parent board members. Eleven are parent elected, and one appointed by the US Embassy. The board meets monthly, with each member serving a three-year term.

Our international accreditations mean that we must maintain the highest possible international standards for teaching and learning, as well as for the facilities, extracurricular activities and the environment that makes us so special.

Teaching Staff

PSI ensures that student learning is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant. To this end, our teachers are certified, experienced and committed professionals. The majority of teachers hold advanced degrees in education and specialist fields from universities around the world. We employ our expatriate teachers from recognised international school recruitment organisations that rigorously screen the background and experience of candidates.

Campus & Facilities

The centrally located urban campus hosts three blocks that house our Primary and Secondary Schools, with specialist facilities that provide ample space and flexibility for events, meetings and extracurricular activities.


PSI offers an academic curriculum using the authorised programmes of the IB. Our curriculum and activities are annually reviewed for quality and suitability to ensure that we meet the evolving needs of our community.

In addition to our IB World School status, PSI is the only international school in Kyiv to be approved and accepted by the Ukrainian School of External Studies, allowing local students to earn Ukrainian certification.

Admission & Placement

We welcome applications for children of all ages and nationalities throughout the school year and will consider all prospective applicants unless it is believed that admission would not be in the best interests of the applicant or the school.
