Nacel International School System


The goal of Nacel International School System (NISS) is to prepare students to achieve professional success in the global community and to become leaders with broad perspectives and high expectations for themselves and others. NISS believes that students must be culturally literate and competent problem solvers. The NISS curriculum emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills and intercultural learning within a college preparatory, academic framework.


The vision of Nacel International School System is to create a school system whereby students will have the opportunity to study in a variety of countries and cultures and yet study within a similar educational system. The goal is to prepare students to succeed in the global workplace and become leaders with broad perspectives and high expectations for themselves and others. It was co-founders Jaeho Eohm, Dr. Abraham Ho, and Dr. Frank Tarsitano who sculpted these ideas into reality by creating the umbrella program of Nacel International School System.

In Nacel’s vision of bringing its own brand of international education to other countries, it developed a model high school in the United States. Over the last decade, Nacel has also established schools in Korea, Poland, China, the Philippines, France, and Vietnam.

As its educational system grows and develops around the world, NISS seeks to instill and maintain a common vision and focus for all schools. Using resources and methods developed initially for St. Paul Preparatory School in the U.S., NISS aims to build quality and continuity among its schools, regardless of their locations. NISS is expanding its offices to Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Logistics, such as site procurement, marketing, staff development, curriculum, accreditation, and integration with other Nacel programs, are managed by a team of experienced administrators.
