INCHEON, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Chadwick International, an international school in Songdo, Incheon, obtained a preliminary approval from the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and will begin operating in September. Being run by Chadwick School, a prestigious private school in Los Angeles, U.S.A., Chadwick International will start to recruit students from kindergarten through 7th grade (full 12 years old) in Korea and overseas at the end of June.

Two additional stages of review must be completed by the free economy zones (FEZ) committee of the Ministry of Knowledge Economy and approval by the Minister of Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. The school will be granted autonomy in selecting students, setting tuition, and formulating the curriculum.

In May 2009, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology implemented a policy in accordance with the ‘Service Progress Plan in Education’ that for five years from now 30% of the total enrollees may be Korean students who have not lived overseas. The yearly tuition is USD 26,000~28,000. The admission process consists of a 1st phase where report cards from a certain period of schooling are evaluated along with the recommendation letter from a teacher, and a 2nd phase where students must sit for a written exam in English and be interviewed.

“We are committed to developing cosmopolitan students through our world-class educational curriculum delivered at the unrivaled facilities in Korea’s Songdo Campus in the Songdo International Business Complex,” said a representative of the Chadwick School.
