International School & Boarding Care 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 IB school experience to children in grades K-12. Ex-pat and local families choose us for high-quality English-speaking education and a strongly-supportive community experience. 

TCIS cares about children and their well-being. We are known for providing children in elementary, middle, and high school with an engaging holistic experience. Students feel like they are supported and part of a caring team. TCIS programs promote growth in academics, character, global awareness, balance, and leadership.
