Welcome to Brasilia International School (BIS). BIS began in September of 1999 as Brasilia International Academy. The school was located in Asa Norte and was attended by 11 students from 6 different countries. As of 2017, the enrollment at BIS reached a high of 182 students from 37 different nationalities around the world. BIS offers a quality caring, classroom environment for students as part of our Early Learning Center (3/4) through 12th grade. BIS is an fully accredited as a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancED. BIS rests in the capital city of Brazil (Brasilia) and is surrounded with beautiful areas to travel and explore. BIS is indeed a special place where ministry is happening on daily basis by God grace as our highly-qualified teachers consider themselves not solely educators but have a missionary heart as well. Whether it is interacting with students, teachers, or parents, from around the globe you are among friends here.
The BIS mission is to maintain a caring learning community based on a Biblical worldview. BIS prepares international students to be life-long learners, effective communicators, responsible citizens, healthy people, and spiritually sensitive individuals. BIS endeavors to partner with parents in their role to instruct their children in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6). In this partnership, BIS commits to providing a dynamic, challenging, and holistic education that recognizes the personal uniqueness of each student and develops them into the person they were created to be. To reach one’s God-given potential, there must be inner transformation that takes place. When that happens, boys and girls, young men and women are not only transformed, but they begin to impact the world around them.
At BIS, as part of our overall vision, we are committed to Christ-centered education with a ministry mindset. We are a school that puts Christ at the center of all academics and activities. We strive to reach our students with the love of Christ and nurture in them Christ-like character and love for God. This Christ-centered focus forms the foundation of our family-friendly environment that respects and encompasses students and families for nations around the world. BIS is a place where students and families are welcomed, known, and valued. No student is merely a name on a class list. Our administration, teachers, and staff strive to educate with a high level of academic integrity and reach each and every child on a daily basis. We want to know our students, make them feel a part of a family, and provide for them a safe place to belong. This commitment transcends to the families of our students and beyond so that our vision of preparing international students to positively impact the world remains while at the same time the glory of God is ultimately realized.
