In 2003, several parents saw a need for an affordable education in English that integrated biblical faith in learning. They desired to offer this education to expat and Czech families. A school board of six members was established, and founding documents were developed.
On 8 September 2004, CISP opened its doors with ten American missionary students. We offered a kindergarten/first grade and classes for 6th-9th graders.
By the end of the first year, we grew to 18 students. Our student population multiplied in the early years, with students coming from different countries and varied backgrounds. Over the years, we have had students from over 50 different countries. Our first 12th grade student graduated in June 2008. Our graduates have been accepted into North American and European universities.
As our student population grew, so did our staff and facilities. We began with two classrooms rented from a Czech elementary school, and now have 21 classrooms, with additional office and resource space. We currently have about 140 students. Our students come from over 25 countries.
We currently have about 50 staff members as well as a number of volunteers.
The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) granted accreditation to CISP since 2013. CISP has also been recognized by MŠMT (Czech Ministry of Education) since 2013.
