Cebu International School (CIS), was founded as the Cebu American School in 1924, and renamed in 1973. It is a co-educational day school, non-profit, non-sectarian institution, governed by a ten-member Board of Trustees. The current legal status of the school is defined in Republic Act No. 9190 (2003). English is the language of instruction at CIS.

From its original location in a villa in Gorordo Avenue, Cebu, the school moved to Banilad, (opposite Cebu Country Club), and then, in 2000, relocated to the present purpose-built campus the northern suburb of Pit-os, Cebu City.

In the 2007/8 School Year, CIS attained full international accreditation status through the Council of International Schools (CIS),[1] the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC);[2] as well as being authorized and recognized by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) and the Department of Education (DepEd) within the Philippines. CIS is also a full member of the East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS).

Cebu International School is an authorized IB World School,[3] offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) from 1999, and the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) from January 2014.

Cebu International School hosted a joint re-accreditation/re-authorization visit by CIS, WASC and the IB in September 2017. As the only internationally accredited and IB-authorized school in the Philippines South of Manila, CIS provides a valuable educational opportunity for local and expatriate families in the Visayas and Mindanao regions of the Philippines, who desire a world-class education, to prepare their children for acceptances into universities around the world.
