KOREAN ACADEMIC PROGRAM
The Korean Program at Hinkson Christian Academy is unique among international schools. The Korean program was started as result of a growing number of Korean students in our student body, and a realization of the importance in preparing and equipping them for re-entry. In the beginning of the Korean program at Hinkson Christian Academy in the fall of 2002, Suwon Central Christian Academy of South Korea played a very important role in recruiting and sponsoring a full-time staff member. Our two previous teachers, Jin Gap Jang (2002-2006) and Seok Kang Cho (2006-2008), were from Suwon CCC. Currently, Mrs. Sarah Yoon directs the Korean program.
Program Objectives To provide Korean students education about their history, literature, culture, and language so that they will have a well-developed sense of their national identity and understand the foundational elements of their country and heritage. To provide these students with a uniquely Christian view of both the Korean world and the broader world so that the students are well prepared to return to their native culture and go into all nations.
Summary of Program Korean students in grades 1 through 8 are required to take the Korean class. The emphasis at every grade level is to teach the specific subject in Korean, however, in a third cultural context. Instruction includes Korean language, history, culture and Chinese characters.
