A large number of graduates entered the Top 50 universities such as UCSD, UCI, and BU
Total scholarship receipt including full scholarships amounted to $1,434,750 (about 1.813524,000 won)
Reflecting employment plans, enrollment in pharmacy, nursing and engineering schools increased significantly.
More than 40 12th-grade students at the KICS Prep School (Korea International Christian School) have passed the university entrance exam. In addition to UC-affiliated schools such as UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and UC Davis, other universities such as Boston, there was a tendency to go to schools with excellent majors rather than relying on the overall rank of the school. By prioritizing career and employment plans students also enrolled in programs at such institutions as the Massachusetts Institute of Pharmacy (MCPHS) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Because private U.S. universities expenses near $40,000 a year, including housing and living expenses, the joy of passing the exam is a big windfall for parents. In that sense, whether a student receives a scholarship is a very important determining factor for deciding upon an entering college. At times, the decision to opt for a university that provides the most generous scholarship takes precedence to a more prestigious or recognizable university. Some of the KICS graduates were offered full scholarships including free dormitory housing, and in the case of majors in pharmacy, the total amount of scholarships they received exceeded 1.8 billion won per year, including guaranteed full scholarships for six years.
KICS Prep School (Korea International Christian School) has three campuses, including BSC (Belville Christian School) approved by regular private schools in the U.S., and Seocho KICS, supporting various activities such as holding domestic and foreign camps during the summer and winter vacation. Since all classes are conducted in English while providing an American curriculum from kindergarten to 12th grade, there is no difficulty in making the transition to an American university directly from KICS. The KICS fall semester will commence on August 25th, and inquiries for new students are made on a continual rolling basis all year round.
