Located on Jeju Island, South Korea, Branksome Hall Asia is an independent school with its own Principal, Glen Radojkovich, and its own Board of Governors. The school has adopted the vision and mission of Branksome Hall Canada, and it offers the IB curriculum.
The school opened in 2012 with 300 students now has more than 500 students. Enrolment is expected to increase to 1,200 in a few years. The opening ceremony on October 29, 2012, attracted almost 1,000 dignitaries, students, faculty, and citizens of Jeju Island.
Faculty include talented, committed educators from several countries.
The new school was designed by architect Pitli Phan, of Singapore, and reflects some of the natural elements of Jeju Island as well as Canadian-inspired elements. Facilities include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an indoor ice rink, a 350-seat perfoming arts centre, a golf academy, and a state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and Visual Art Centre.
With an educational philosophy that is shared with Branksome Hall Canada, Branksome Hall Asia makes it possible for enriched exchange programs that provide our Toronto-based students with the opportunity to experience life in another country without disrupting their studies.
