Academics

Bangkok Christian International School caters to the needs of the Christian missionary community. We serve students in grades K-12, offering an integrated Christian-centered education based on the American curriculum. We are accredited by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Thailand, the AdvancED Accreditation (AdvancED), and North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), USA.

We are affiliated with the Korean Federation of Christian Schools (KFCS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We are also a member of International School Association of Thailand (ISAT) and Thailand International School Activity Conference (TISAC).

Curriculum

BCIS offers an American-style, college-preparatory curriculum using textbooks from publishing companies Glencoe/ McGraw-Hill, Pearson/Prentice Hall, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and SRA/ABEKA. Both LA and Math are now built and based upon the Common Core State Standards. The CCSS will be used in these two subjects so as to ensure vertical and horizontal alignment throughout the school curriculum in those two subjects. Science has adopted the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) for grades 1 to 5 and other grades will soon follow as soon as textbooks are available that are aligned to these latest standards. All classes, except foreign languages, are taught in English. The school provides English as a Foreign Language Program (EFL) and Special Needs Support Services as needed.

Co-Curricular Activities

BCIS offers a wide range of activities to develop student interests and abilities. Students interested in music have the opportunity to participate in band, choir, ensembles, and individual instrument and voice lessons. Students interested in athletics may participate in clubs, intramurals or interscholastic sports through Thailand International Schools Activities Conference such as badminton, football, basketball, track and field, volleyball, table tennis, etc. Special interest clubs meet twice a week and may include art, badminton, computer, arts and crafts, performing arts, Bible Study, Worship Club and vocal ensemble just to name a few. BCIS has a very active student government through Student Council as well as many community service/outreach and ministry opportunities.

BCIS has thoroughly enjoyed being an active member of the TISAC organization better known as Thailand International Schools Activities Conference. Students have had the tremendous privilege of meeting and becoming friends with other young people from many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds studying in many other international schools through the variety of TISAC activities and sporting programs that take place throughout the year. Various BCIS basketball and football teams were league and tournament champions in 2014-2015 including the Under 13 Girls’ Basketball Team, Under 15 Girls’ Basketball Team, and the Senior Boys’ Basketball Team. We continue to perform very well in this conference.

Kindergarten

The Kindergarten curriculum focuses on developing a love for learning and the continual development of the whole child - social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical and artistic. It is strongly influenced by Creative Curriculum and uses Child-initiated learning where children develop their process skills through hands-on experience. We celebrate the wonder of God's hand in all things as we teach the BCIS curriculum.

Elementary

The Elementary Curriculum focuses on building 'global citizens' and leaders for the 21st century integrated with Christian Values. It reflects the methodologies and strategies that encourage personal learning, multicultural awareness and service learning. Learners are challenged to think about the "how" and "why" of what they are learning.

High School

The High School Curriculum is designed to demonstrate dynamic involvement in any learning experience, seeking excellence for God’s glory while fostering a family atmosphere of respect, concern for others, open-mindedness, self esteem, and self discipline. Learners are challenged to deal with everyday problems, make decisions, and find solutions to life’s challenges in the light of an enhanced curriculum enriched with Biblical truths and Christian values.

EFL Program

The EFL (English as a Foreign Language) program is designed to meet the needs of newly accepted students who are non-native English speakers and have beginner level English skills. It focuses on the four (4) core language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Learners are challenged to practice these language skills throughout the program so they can function independently at their grade level.
