Chadwick International is committed to selecting mission-fit students who will become passionate self-directed learners of the highest character. Students will be equipped with the tools and experiences they need to build enduring friendships around the world based on the shared values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Fairness and Compassion. Chadwick International also values academic excellence, creativity and sustainability.
Qualified students from expatriate families residing in Korea will be considered a priority for admissions. When assessing your child’s application, the Admissions Office considers academic records, teacher recommendations, assessment test scores, and English proficiency. Given Chadwick's emphasis on our core values - respect, responsibility, fairness, compassion and honesty - the student's character and integrity play a significant part in our decision-making. Other factors include age appropriate considerations of leadership, work ethic and commitment, and talent - both potential and demonstrated. We consider each student in the context of the total applicant pool. Each year, the admissions committees bring together a diverse group of new students, each of whom brings the ability and desire to thrive in our community - academically and personally.
Qualified candidates who have submitted complete applications will be assessed for each grade level. Students coming from schools with similar calendars as Chadwick International should apply to the subsequent grade level they have completed in that same school year (e.g. candidates completing Grade 5 in the United States in June 2021 should apply to Grade 6 for the 2021-2022 school year). Students coming from Korean schools must apply to the grade they will be starting within that same school year (e.g. candidates starting Grade 5 in Korean schools in the beginning of 2021 must apply to Grade 5 at Chadwick for the 2021-2022 school year.
