United World College Thailand (UWCT) is a co-educational, IB Continuum programme for students from Nursery to Gr 12. Founded as Phuket International Academy in 2008, UWCT has grown to serve nearly 500 day and boarding students. Our first Gr 12 cohort graduated in May 2016 and we anticipate growth to over 800 students (including 150 boarders) by 2025. A ‘mission-driven school’, UWCT stands on five balanced pillars: Academics; Social and Emotional Learning and Mindfulness; Service; Activities and Outdoor Education. The School is a dynamic, high-energy environment and we seek individuals that will thrive in a fast-paced, high-standards culture that keeps students and the mission at the core of what we do. UWCT became the 16th United World College in August 2016 as we began to welcome National Committee selected students into Gr 11 that are selected from around the world due their UWC mission and values alignment regardless of their family's financial situation.
