Vacancies are dependent upon re-enrollment of current students. The possibility of opening additional sections in any grade will be determined by the number of eligible applicants and availability of teachers. When possible this information will be made available to prospective families on the Admissions webpage.
Admissions is competitive. We look for students who have the greatest potential to succeed, making the most of their academic abilities and actively participating in the many opportunities available outside the classroom. Initially, the Admissions Committee considers the candidates' school records, teacher recommendations, and other test scores. The student's character and integrity are also significant in our decision making process, as are leadership, commitment, and talent. Prior to our selection of a candidate, the Admissions Committee considers each student in the context of the applicant pool in order to bring together a balanced and diverse group of new students with the ability to thrive in our community academically and personally. Candidates will be assessed in their reading comprehension, quantitative and English language skills. Pre-selected students will be invited back to campus for individual and group interviews. To be eligible for admission at Chadwick International (CI), a student may hold either a foreign or a Korean passport. Siblings of current CI students will be listed as preferential candidates for admissions.
Test scores are one piece of the complete student profile. They provide us with a standardized measurement that is used in conjunction with all of the information gathered about the candidate. Given that our students come from varied educational backgrounds, test scores are one way we can objectively assess our applicants. Students will also be evaluated through writing samples, individual interviews and group activities.
Our school year includes approximately 180 school days beginning on mid August and ending in mid-June. Holidays include Korean national holidays such as Chuseok, Lunar New Year, Hangeul Day, as well as other international holidays like American Thanksgiving, Spring Break and Winter Break, etc. Please visit our website to view the current school year calendar.
Yes. Although English is the language of instruction at Chadwick International, we hope our students will gain competence in a language other than English and/or their mother tongue. Students in PreK and Kindergarten study Korean. Grades 1-5 students may select from Korean or Mandarin. Students in all other grades can choose from Korean, Mandarin or Spanish.
Yes. Extra-curricular activities are numerous, including a variety of clubs and athletic opportunities. The list of clubs and activities may change every quarter, depending on students' interests and instructors availability. Chadwick International is a member of both the KAIAC and KISAC interscholastic leagues, and many of the activities and athletics available to students are based on these league activities.
We welcome parent involvement in the school; this spirit of participation enhances our community and the experience of all involved, especially the students. All parents become members of the Chadwick International Parents Association(CIPA),which provides a myriad of opportunities to participate and to support the school's mission.
The CIPA is formed for the purpose of "giving assistance to the faculty and administration of the school, and carrying on activities generally intended to promote and support the school." We rely on the richness and diversity of talent in our parent body - there is something for everyone! Please visit the CIPA webpage for more information.
