Welcome From the Admissions Director

I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about the British International School of Chicago, South Loop and what it has to offer your family.

Our School is located in the heart of Chicago. Appreciating that every child is unique, BISC-SL students enjoy a personalized approach to learning through which they are inspired to Be Ambitious. They flourish within our nurturing environment, achieving academic success, developing socially, and exploring extra-curricular activities in a vibrant, inclusive community.

BISC-SL students are able to take advantage of the many cultural resources on offer in Chicago and they are becoming true global citizens through their experiences within our diverse community, consisting of more than 40 nationalities. They also benefit from being part of Nord Anglia Education, a family of premium education schools around the world, which affords them unparalleled opportunities through collaborations with The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and UNICEF; Global Campus which connects students globally; and Expeditions, including service learning in Tanzania and hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment to visit BISC-SL. I look forward to welcoming you to our campus and sharing our program with you.
