A Solid Option for Education

TCIS is a K-12 international school in Daejeon, South Korea, offering all three IB programs and options for boarding care. As an international school, we offer a school model that has similar elements to those that might be found in the United States and the UK, educating according to American and international curriculum standards, and delivered within an English-speaking and western-based cultural context.

Our students come from more than 23 countries, and our faculty join us from all around the world. We are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (USA) and authorized by the IB (international) to deliver the PYP, MYP, and DP programs. In addition, we offer a variety of opportunities for international competition and collaboration activities, and participation with  clubs that hold importance in the community and international affiliations.

Wonderul Community

One thing that stands out about our community is an emphasis on character and values. We are a Christian school, offering opportunities for children to consider and grow in their faith, but families from many faith backgrounds and nationalities come together in our community, united in values of peace, justice, and caring service for others.  

A Unique Opportunity In Boarding

TCIS is situated in the heart of South Korea. Local Korean and expat families choose Daejeon because it is a safe, comfortable, and healthy place to live. Our campus sits on a hill overlooking Techno Valley, in an area of forerunning innovation in research and design for Korea and all of Asia. It really is a fantastic place both for family living and for  delivering education.

The TCIS Boarding Care Program makes education in setting available for a wide range of families:

  • Families from other cities in Korea send their children to TCIS for an international education in this quiet, healthy environment. They appreciate that it is away from the congestion of larger cities.
  • Foreign families from outside of Korea choose to attend TCIS for the quality of education and the international experience abroad. They appreciate that this is a safe and developed country, full of beautiful culture, yet the international school setting and American-based accreditation expands their options open for attending univerisity.
  • Korean families abroad typically send their children to connect with their home country while maintaining the familiarity of western education and continuing toward their ultimate goals for education and careers in the West.

I love this community so much. I first joined as a parent, as my own three children attended, and now I love sharing with families about this wonderful place.
