Cebu International School (CIS) is the only internationally accredited school in the Visayas/Mindanao region, as well as the only school in the Philippines to offer all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP). The mission of CIS is to create a collaborative, challenging, and nurturing school environment that involves community members, in order to provide a contemporary international education, which develops students’ unique potential to contribute to a better world.


The CIS Scholarship is intended for students with outstanding achievement and potential in any one of the following areas: academics, the arts, athletics, and service to their community. All Filipino scholarship candidates will have to meet standard CIS admissions requirements as well as pass the requirements of the CIS Scholarship Committee.

Preference for scholarships will be given to students who are not only academically qualified and demonstrate the ability to meet the rigors of the program, but also to those who demonstrate a commitment to contributing to the wider life of the school, such as through sports, arts, and service.

As a scholar at Cebu International School, I have learned that dreams can turn into reality if one is willing to work hard for it. I am not where I am today because of luck rather because I believed that I am capable of achieving what was once seen as impossible. Given the chance to study here, I am provided with the best education possible that will suit my needs to develop my potential in changing the world.


CIS Academic Scholar, Class of 2021
My experiences as a Cebu International School scholar taught me the importance of taking risks and being involved in the world around me. The international community that I was immersed in, along with the school’s rigorous academic program, contributed a lot to my personal growth which helped me earn a scholarship at New York University Abu Dhabi.
