International School & Boarding in Korea

Taejon Christian International School is one of the top foreign schools in Korea. With a caring international faculty, TCIS delivers a Western-style, STEM+Arts-focused IB school experience to children in grades K-12. Ex-pat and local families choose us for a high-quality English-speaking education and a strongly-supportive community experience. 

TCIS provides elementary, middle, and high school students with an engaging holistic experience. Students feel like they are part of a caring team of peers and mentors that challenges them toward their personal best. TCIS promotes growth in academics, character, global awareness, and leadership; we do this through the IB DP, MYP, and PYP programs as a continuous path to create competent learners.

Students from Daejeon, Seoul, China, North America, Europe, and beyond join local students through the Boarding Care Program, creating a dynamic and multicultural learning environment.
