The School

  • Located in a tranquil residential area, Hwa Chong Institution Boarding School (HCIBS) provides boarders with excellent opportunities for academic achievement within a stimulating and caring environment. Life as a boarder teaches the all-important qualities of independence, selfconfi dence, self-discipline, compassion, tolerance & patience. Boarding is a great fun! Life-long friendships are fostered and bonds strengthened as boarders share in each other’s joys and disappointments.

  •  Holders of Dependent Pass (DP) / Immigration Exemption Orders (IEO)
