Learning at CIS
Learning at CIS is a transformative process that leads to conceptual understanding, demonstration of competencies through application, and character development as seen through the CIS Core Values.
Learning the CIS Way
Experts in any field have deep conceptual understanding of their work, competencies to act on their understandings, and the character needed to see things through. Learning at CIS focuses on these 3Cs to nurture, challenge and empower students to become experts in whatever it is they choose to become.
Learning through exploration and inquiry is natural for young children. It creates the foundation of learning and supports children as they move into adulthood. The CIS elementary program empowers young learners to remain curious, thoughtful and compassionate throughout their lives.
A time of change and one of defining who one is as a person. Our middle school program creates experiences of learning that both ground and challenge teens to discover who they are as learners and as people.
Success for our high schoolers means being adept and capable at a wide range of disciplines. The vast opportunities across STEM subjects, the Arts, and Humanities create rich opportunities to discover one’s passion and develop the discipline needed to thrive in the world.
CIS academic and pastoral care programs are closely integrated to support children as they move into adulthood. Anchored by international curriculum, brought to life by diverse and expert faculty, CIS programs are designed to build character needed to contribute with the intellectual capacity to act.
Our four-year university counseling program empowers students and families to understand the process for each student’s specific needs towards university acceptances. Whether for engineering or the fine arts, our team focuses on the career choice, geographical preferences and needs of students and families for their next phase of life.
