Taejon Christian International School

IB World School

International Boarding Program

Founded in 1958 by missionaries as a centrally located boarding school outside of Seoul. Taejon Christian International School (TCIS) opened the 2012-2013 school year at a brand new purpose-built campus in Daedeok Techno Valley, located in the newly developed section of Daejeon, leaving the old part of the city more than half a century after U.S. missionaries founded the school in 1958. Techno Valley is an attractive business park and residential area surrounded by greenery and a golf course and is located adjacent to the Daedeok Science Town.

With the move to the new campus the exceptional educational product will now be produced in a 21st century learning environment for PK-12th grade students. Spread on 43,000 square-meter property, phase one of the construction includes a five-story academic building, a multi-storied gymnasium complex, a 500-seat performing arts center, an activity center and a five-story dormitory. The school has made efforts to be an environmentally friendly facility wherever possible.

TCIS traces its humble beginnings back to the end of the Korean War when it was founded in 1958 under the original name of Korean Christian Academy for educating the children of U.S. missionaries connected with the once-thriving Pyongyang Foreign School that traces its opening to 1900. The school today has grown into a vibrant community serving a diverse body of international students representing some 20 countries spearheading the highly respected IB education within Korea. TCIS is the first fully authorized IB world school in Korea offering all three IB programs: PYP, MYP and DP and accredited by WASC

 Academics and Christian character development have always been central to TCIS education. TCIS graduates matriculate to prominent universities around the world. Members of the 2014 graduating class were offered admissions into Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, UC Berkeley, New York, Northwestern, University of Pennsylvania, University of the Pacific Dentistry, University of California at LA, Brandies, Case Western Reserve, University of Hong Kong, among many other renowned institutions. To serve students from other parts of Korea and the rest of Asia, the school operates one of the most renowned, accredited boarding programs for 6th-12th students in a safe, family-like environment. The new campus was developed through the school’s partnership with the City of Daejeon, the Korean central government, and Hyosan Medical Foundation.
