Grace International School (or GIS as it is known among its community) follows a mission to provide Christ-integrated education and equips students to influence the world for Christ. The school’s core values include being Christ-centred, caring for students and committing to excellence.
Located in the northern part of Thailand in Chiang Mai, the original Grace Academy was established by a missionary couple to provide a quality Christian education for the children of overseas workers located in the South East Asian region. The objective was that the parents could continue working without having to worry about their children’s education being compromised.
The school stresses the restorative power of God’s grace in individual lives and within the world community. It fosters student responsibility in making informed choices based on God’s word and leadership of the holy spirit. In keeping with their sense of civic responsibility, GIS is committed to providing the additional services required to support both homeschooling families as well as students with special needs.
Grace International School caters to students from preschool up to secondary levels using a US-based curriculum. The curriculum of the school reflects complexity and richness of God’s world and promotes students to live constructive Christian lives.
GIS pays attention to each student’s uniqueness and affirms to their developmental level. The teachers in the school have the freedom and responsibility to creatively express the curriculum. The non-Thai faculty and staff all have a strong spiritual faith in Christianity, and assist in keeping tuition costs affordable for parents by raising their own financial support.
The school also has an extension services division which provides educational support to children of International Christian workers so that they remain dedicated to their service while their children are educated at home. The school also has fun events to enrich the students lives such as Christmas and Spring showcases and weekend field trips.
