Korea Kent Foreign School was founded in 1994 to provide education to international students in Seoul, South Korea. More than 30 nationalities are represented in the student body, with the majority of students coming from the United States. The student enrollment is around three hundred in total, from Kindergarten to Highschool.

The school is authorized by the Republic of Korea Minister of Education, member of East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools, and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

The school started as a high school only institution. Today, it has classes from kindergarten through to grade twelve. Now the school is located in Gwangjin-gu, in a very modern design.

All classes are taught in English only. AP classes are also offered at Korea Kent Foreign School. There is an ESL (English as a second language) program, which offers supplemental classes to support students with deficient levels of English ability.

The school has approximately one hundred students enrolled in each education level, from elementary school, middle school to high school.
