Dear Prospective Students and Parents,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Daegu International School. The faculty and staff of DIS are excited that you are considering our school for your educational needs. At DIS, everyone works together to make sure our students grow socially, emotionally, and academically while attending our school. We hope to work with you to meet your educational needs. DIS is an independent international school that is affiliated with Lee Academy in Maine, USA. We offer our program to both boarding and day students. Through that affiliation, we offer the same challenging program that is offered at Lee Academy. When students graduate from DIS, they will be eligible to receive a Daegu International School diploma and a Lee Academy diploma.

Students who attend DIS will receive an American education based on the Advanced Placement system of the College Board. With the exception of World Languages, all of our classes are taught in English by fully certified native English speaking teachers.

Being an independent international school in Korea, there are special circumstances of our admissions process that prospective families need to know prior to application. Korean law allows only a specific percentage of our population to be Korean citizens. Students who are not Korean citizens are able to apply for admissions on a rolling basis. Our admissions forms are also available to download at your convenience.

Thank you for your interest in Daegu International School. We hope we will be able to work with you to meet your educational needs. Please look over all aspects of our website to give you a better idea of what life at DIS is like for our students. If you have any questions or if you would like more information about admissions, please contact our admissions office at admissions@dis.sc.kr or +82-53-980-2100 and someone will be glad to help you. Best wishes on your journey to find the educational institution that best meets your needs!
