BIA is an International Baccalaureate education provider in Geoje Island, South Korea.


Welcome to BIA

British International Academy is an independent academy for learners aged 2-18 years old. BIA enjoys a rural setting in Deokpo with its own gardens, just a 5 minute drive from central Okpo. We are lucky enough to be close to the mountains and have Deokpo Beach nearby, giving us unlimited access to Geoje’s beautiful nature – extending our learning environment beyond the classroom walls.


Child-centered Education

Our goal is to provide an excellent, balanced and child-centered education that is both enjoyable and meaningful. A natural setting, small class sizes, knowledgeable and passionate teachers and supportive parents all work together to create a safe and caring learning environment. Academically, we use the IB PYP, MYP, DP framework, supported by the English National Curriculum. Beyond the classroom, we offer an imaginative programme of creative, sporting, cultural and social activities that offers further challenges and experiences.

Extraordinary Academy

Above all, we offer the environment, care and positive encouragement that children need in order to develop into confident and caring global citizens, who will be able to thrive and solve problems in an ever changing world. You are warmly invited to visit us and experience our extraordinary academy for yourselves.
