Led by the current founding president, Jean Seok Nam, Global Vision Christian School (GVCS) established campuses at Eumsung in 2003, and Mungyung in 2011 based on a Christian education.

GVCS programs include English language program, English only classes, foreign language education (Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, German), Taekwondo training for the whole student body (2nd or 3rd degree black belt), a fine arts program that trains students to play at least one musical instrument, sports clubs activities, and study abroad programs.

About 1,000 students are enrolled at Eumsung and Mungyung campuses. Graduates have matriculated to Ivy League universities and high-ranking colleges in the United States, colleges around the world and universities in Korea.

GVCS offers partial and full scholarships annually to children of missionaries, pastors, 3rd world country families, economically weak families, and North Korean defectors.

Using boarding school facilities at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and starting model operation in the fall of 2014 as well as regular operation in the fall of 2015, GVCS combines a Korean and American education.



We realize alternative education as a solution of the social problems experienced by an increasing number of students after study abroad programs.

GVCS Vision

The loss of identity due to internalization and the problem of families growing Gireogi dads (dads alone earning money in the home country with the

family abroad) and the low success rate (less than 20%) due to lack of effective administration and difficulty to effectively learn English even after

spending a huge amount of money (more than 6 trillion KRW yearly as of 2007) for early study abroad after the overall permission of early study abroad by the government in 2000.

We realize the alternative education by preparing specialized program and educational environment to effectively train students to learn foreign languages

and global cultures without going abroad whose vision and parents expectation is in more global diplomat, international relations, international law, and high technology.

We aim to make a school where students are respected as individuals.

A school that students would want to go,and a school to study independently by providing sound teenage culture education with more than the curriculum by

the Ministry of Education and personality education of the Christian spirit for the students who want to spend their teenage years safe from the wrong school

and culture of smoking, schools today language violence, or rejection and that is found in.
