I am ready to study ‘very hard’ at your campus, but am a little afraid my English may not be strong enough to study the American curriculum. Do you have any special arrangements for my situation?I am ready to study ‘very hard’ at your campus, but am a little afraid my English may not be strong enough to study the American curriculum.

We accept 9th grade students whose English score is 217 or higher on ELTiS. If you apply for the 10th grade, your score needs to be five points higher. Any students whose English is slightly lower than our requirements will be interviewed by both the headmaster and the dean for conditional admission. If a student is admitted conditionally, evening test prep-courses and study hall for three days a week will be required for that student. In addition, that student will also be required to enroll in three hours of preparatory English courses for two consecutive semesters. The student can earn only half credit for these preparatory English courses. Then after the two semesters, the student will be required to take the ELTiS again to prove they are qualified to study in our campus, at least linguistically.
Can I study at another branch campus of Saint Paul American Schools as an exchange student while I am enrolled in SPAD?
Yes, you can. All branch campus of Saint Paul American Schools use basically the same curriculum, and the campuses in Beijing and Clark have the special track of STEM. Of course, you can just take the non-STEM regular subjects there as well. If you like the school or the specific city where the campus is located you can continue to stay there.
How is Saint Paul Academy Daechi (SPAD) different from other schools in Korea?
SPAD is one of the branch campuses of Saint Paul American Schools, with the same curriculum and the same qualification requirements for teachers.
How do you assist students in applying for universities?
We understand that most of our students will go to universities in the US, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Britain, Canada, or Australia. We offer test prep courses for TOEFL and the SAT, and we have a college counseling team at the school to assist students in deciding their majors, schools, and any future plans.
