British School of Chicago:
The British School of Chicago (BSC), located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, is a co-educational, college preparatory, accredited day school offering Nursery School to Year 13 (Pre-K to Grade 12) programs. There are over twenty nationalities represented at the school with the majority being British and American. All BSC teachers are recruited from the United Kingdom or international schools worldwide, and are of the highest calibre. Every teacher is experienced in the National Curriculum (England) and has a variety of academic specialist skills. All teachers at the BSC take part in a continuous programme called In Service Training (INSET).
The British School of Chicago is accredited by Fieldwork Education as a Learning-Focused School; the National Independent Private Schools Association (NIPSA); and the Council of International Schools (CIS). The British School of Chicago is also accredited to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

BSC's unique, international curriculum provides outstanding pathways to universities and colleges around the world. All BSC students in Years 12 and 13 will follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) which is recognised as a passport to higher education. Some students will work towards certificates in individual subjects and some students will work towards the full diploma, but all students have access to the challenging IBDP curriculum.
The IBDP is a demanding two-year curriculum which leads to a qualification that is widely recognised by the world's leading universities. Students in the IBDP learn more than just a collection of facts. The IBDP prepares students for university by encouraging them to ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and to develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from outer countries and cultures. We are working closely with our IBDP students to develop individualised university applications to ensure that students continue their learning beyond BSC.
The British School of Chicago is open to children of all nationalities and has a wide mix of American and British children as well as children from over 20 countries. Many American families are drawn to the British School of Chicago because of the differentiated curriculum and the exposure to many different cultures in the classroom. No matter what their background is, each child is supported to reach his or her maximum potential regardless of whether his or her previous experience of school has been in a British-style educational environment.
The British School of Chicago is located in the popular Lincoln Park area, one of the North side community areas of Chicago, Illinois, with easy access from I-90/94 and the CTA Red Line.
