OUR MISSION

CIS was established to help students have full preparation for studying abroad , such as improving their English skills and right attitudes for studying, and building up their confidence. We, at CIS, understand that studying abroad is an
important turning point for our students. We provide a solid foundation for them in Taiwan as they start the ground works for learning how to adjust to the foreign education system and how to make the important decision on
choosing which college and university to attend. We aim to empower them with knowledge and pave the road to their future success.

OUR ESTABLISHMENT

We established CIS in Taiwan with the goal to incorporate all the crucial elements for a smooth transition into Ontario education system, including qualified teachers, Canadian education curriculum and class materials.
Moreover, we aim to prepare our students to be successfully accepted into top universities in the world

OUR GOAL

We share the common belief as the parents of our students --
We want our students to be accepted into universities of their choice and to build up their personal character while
maintaining reasonable costs for our parents. Often, students that study bilingual schools may still not be ready for
studying abroad either due to poor English proficiencies and a lack of overseas experience and missing Canadian
course credits and grades that are needed for university admissions. At CIS, we ensure our students gain a
well-grounded high school education, equipping them with needed life skills and overseas study experience to study Grade 12 in Canada and to attend top universities in the world.
