Home / Greeting

Welcome from the team at the Global Prodigy Academy (GPA).  GPA is a private international college preparatory high school located on the campus of Jeonju University, South Korea. GPA was established in 2006 to support the educational needs of both Korean and international families. GPA is accredited by the American organization WASC – the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. GPA’s mission is to prepare students for international universities/colleges. GPA students are provided with the skills to become global leaders.

As the principal of GPA, I strive to encourage the best possible relationships between parents, students, teachers and Jeonju University. All of our stakeholders contribute to the success of our school. I personally take a lot of pride in the efforts and achievements of our students. Every day we work to improve the learning experiences of our students. We believe GPA provides an exceptional educational opportunity for students – being on the JJU campus, the school is situated in a safe, peaceful and scenic environment.

Through the application of an English-language American-standards-based curriculum, GPA prepares students to continue their education at international universities. Approximately 90 percent of GPA graduates (2017-2018) were able to attend universities in six different countries. The majority of our recent students (over 70% of 2017-2018 graduates) attended American universities.

We work in partnership with Jeonju University and the surrounding community. I encourage you to visit us here at GPA and sample the educational opportunities we offer.  Please take time to see the information available on our website.

I look forward to meeting you at GPA soon.

Principal Dr. Youngwoo Park
