Seoul Foreign School aims to create innovative learning environment and facilities for our students. Back in 2013, the SFS Board completed a master plan to restructure the entire SFS campus. The master plan is intended to restructure and enhance the educational environment to meet our students’ aspirations and to begin ‘Building for the Future.’

The first phrase of the campaign was the new High School Building Project which opened in August 2018.

The students from year 2018-19 were the first ones to benefit in studying in this new facility. The new building has already made a big difference in the learning and teaching opportunities of the school and impact the whole campus.

Below are the 2 ways in which you can support and participate in this exciting campaign:

“I believe that the new high school truly encompasses all of the core resources that students need for their academic pursuits and creative innovations. The multiple collaborative areas in each floor and the Walt Whitman Library truly inspires students to strive for perfection, and provides an incredible platform for excellence. I feel very privileged to be part of such an incredible medium for education.”

Geo Yoo, Class of 2020

This will be a wonderful opportunity to leave your legacy at the school. We encourage you and your family to make a contribution at your earliest convenience as spaces are limited.

“As students, our parents donated to the construction of the Lyso Center and turfing the field for the first time. Little did they know that it wouldn’t just be benefiting their children, but their grandchildren as well! Now that we’re SFS parents, we wanted to donate to the next building project, the High School, knowing that it might not only benefit our children, but generations to come. We want to be part of the legacy of giving for the future.”

3. Donor Wall

In order to thank and honor so many of our donors who have contributed to our first Building for the Future campaign, we have created and installed a beautiful Donor Wall in the stairways of our High School building. All donations, regardless of size have been recognized and we are proud to have our donors permanently marked on this beautiful Donor Wall.

“SFS has provided my children many wonderful opportunities for growth and exploration. The community’s focus on serving others while pursuing excellence is inspiring. Our family is pleased to donate to the Building for the Future Fund as we have confidence SFS will continue to be a nurturing and challenging environment for students to develop into dedicated global citizens.”
