Take a Walk Along Han River!
Our campus is located within walking distance of the northern section of Han River.   You can spend your evening after classes walking along the Laveniche March Avenue.  The river walk runs along the Han River and has a large variety of restaurants and shops for you to explore!

If you feel like exploring Gimpo on the weekends, you can go island hopping to Ganghwa-do and take a walk along the beach!  The island is famous for having many ancient artifacts and you can learn more about how the history and culture of Korea has evolved from prehistoric times to the modern era.  You can visit traditional Korean style buddhist temples, Jeondeungsa and Bomunsa temple!

Director's Message

Better things are coming.

 

There is an increasing need for English education every day. At Little America, we provide GES education which is an American curriculum that was developed in Silicon Valley and IP PYP (Primary Years Programme) which is a student-centered approach for young learners. Through GES education, students learn STEM subjects, artificial intellligence, coding, and innovation. Futurologist Alvin Toffler stated that as society changes, it brings about confusion and the only way to continue is to adapt to change. Therefore, our mission is to foster global talent.
