Year 7-13 Applicants

At CIS, the Secondary programme aims to empower students to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and personal qualities they need to participate effectively in life in the 21st century.

The Secondary school serves students from Year 7-13. Students in Year 7-9 pursue the Middle Years Programme (IBMYP). Students in Year 10 pursue a year-long residential programme in Hangzhou that offers considerable scope for personalised, project-based and interdisciplinary learning, as well as a focus on service. Students in Year 11 return to Hong Kong to pursue a school-based curriculum that serves as a bridge between the Hangzhou year and the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). Students in Years 12-13 pursue the IBDP.

Our Secondary school is larger than our Primary school and therefore we are able to offer more than 50 new places in Year 7. Students are also welcome to apply for Year 8 and above. The main language of instruction is English and a solid command of this language is necessary in order to apply.  Chinese (Mandarin) is a required subject and is offered at different levels.
Financial Aid is available for new students entering in Year 8 and above who qualify for financial assistance. Click here to learn more.
