All students (Junior Kindergarten Prep to Grade 12) study a coherent program that includes, English, a second language or mother tongue language, social sciences, science, mathematics, and the arts. Physical and health education is compulsory until Grade 10. Technology is integrated into all areas of the curriculum. In all programs, Korean language, social studies, and history are taught.
In the Middle and Senior years, optional courses are available so that students can explore a breadth of study. Students can choose from the following courses: Digital Design, Product Design, Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Business, Economics, Psychology, Geography, History, Korean, Spanish, Chinese, and Film Studies. Starting in Grade 10, students can also opt to pursue a specialty in the sciences (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental Systems and Societies). All staff members, particularly Guidance Counselors and University Counselors, help our students and their families understand the course options and criteria for success.
An extended Korean program enables students to have enriched Korean language instruction as well as instruction in History and Social Studies in Korean. Classes in English as an additional language are also available for students whose mother tongue is not English.
