Accredited by the Korean Ministry of Education and as a member of the College Board, Association of Christian Schools International, and Council of International School Administration in Korea, GCFS has been working since 1996 to raise Christian leaders on the international stage. GCFS teachers work with students from kindergarten to the end of their senior year at a faculty to student ratio of 1 to 5.
