Hwa Chong International School (HCIS) is a member of the prestigious Hwa Chong family of schools, drawing its strength and mission from a century old tradition of educational excellence and philanthropy. Established in 2005 with the endorsement of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Economic Development Board of Singapore (EDB), HCIS is part of Singapore’s endeavour to diversify the local education landscape and offer more educational pathways and connections with the region and the world. As a local international school, at least half of the student population consist of Singaporean students, and the rest from over 20 countries.
HCIS offers an integrated six-year programme that prepares students for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) at Year 4 (Grade 10), followed by another two years leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma at Year 6 (Grade 12). With the latter, not only are our graduands well placed to seek admission to prestigious universities around the world, they are nurtured into better individuals and global citizens who will collectively create a better world for all. Students of HCIS undergo a holistic education where academic achievements are emphasised alongside character development.
Hwa Chong International School has established itself within a very short time as an attractive alternative to the successful national school system for both local and international students. With support from parents, alumni and the Hwa Chong community, HCIS can definitely scale greater heights to define educational excellence in international education.
