Pyeongtaek International Christian School is located in the city of Pyeongtaek which is approximately 50 miles south of the city of Seoul. The Pyeongtaek area has been chosen by the US military to be a “hub” location for Korea and the school is close to Osan Air Force Base and Camp Humphries Army Base. The school’s proximity to these military installations impacts school enrollment and approximately 40% of the students have parents who work for defense-related companies. The city of Pyeongtaek has a population of approximately 400,000 people and is steadily increasing in size. The climate in Pyeongtaek is typically hot and humid in the summer months (June to August) with temperatures of 80-90 degrees. In the winter months (December to February) temperatures are between 20-35 degrees. The dry winter climate limits the amount of snowfall to less than 6-8 inches per year. The weather in spring and fall is usually moderate and comfortable. The school operates off of standard American type curriculum. PICS is on a regular American-style calendar with school starting in late August and ending in early June. Students will be challenged to make their own personal commitments of faith in Jesus Christ and to take steps toward spiritual growth. PICS is looking for individuals who have an enthusiasm and passion for Jesus Christ.
