College Prep

College Prep

At Handong International School, we aim to provide guidance so students can be faithful stewards with integrated thinking and competent communication skills, global citizens with balanced minds and bodies. 

Our unique Handong curriculum and guidance program aims to open the futures of students so they can spread their wings on the worldwide stage with a solid foundation.

In terms of college preparation, HIS students go on to universities in Korea and overseas, with dedicated teachers giving guidance for both options. Students opting for Korean universities receive guidance including mock interviews, essay assistance, competitions, and mock KSAT tests. For students interested in applying overseas, HIS administers online AP classes, PSAT/NMSQT, SAT and AP exams, as well as offering guidance with writing English essays, assistance with college applications in various countries, practice interviews, and providing English-language school records.

Here are the universities that HIS students have been accepted to over the past few years:
