We offer two complementary educational paths: the International Baccalaureate Continuum of Programmes and the English National Curriculum. Learn more about the option that may be appropriate for your child below.
Typically, we begin accepting applications for the new school year (a year out) in November and begin offering admission decisions in early Spring. When all required documents are received, the application can be reviewed for admission if space is available at the appropriate grade level.
If a grade level is at capacity, we will maintain a waitpool. We know that your child’s education is a major concern in your accepting the move to Seoul so our best advice is to complete the application process as early as possible.
For new students beginning in August, New Student Orientation is offered the day before the first day of classes. This is an opportunity for new students to meet other new students, teachers, counselors, principals, and to tour the school.
For students beginning after the first day of school, the section counselor will assign new students a “buddy” to help them through the first week of school.

We have a fleet of buses serving most of the expatriate residential areas of the city but are generally limited to driving routes that do not exceed one hour in driving time each way. Although we do our best to accommodate all families, we cannot guarantee school bus service. Please refer to our transportation page for more details.
