Imagine a place where children explore and grow in their faith while also learning the language and culture of True Parents. The General Orientation Program (GOP) in Korea has provided an immersive cultural and spiritual experience for young people for over 30 years.

When your child enrolls in the GOP 2018-2019 school year, he or she will have the opportunity to learn the Korean language, experience Korean food, culture and lifestyle and visit places where True Parents carried out their providential course.

Students between 12-15 years old are invited to participate in this unique program that provides academic and experiential learning within a spiritually nurturing community. The GOP staff is dedicated to providing a warm and safe living environment in which your son or daughter can thrive academically as well as spiritually. Students often come to grow their knowledge of the Korean language, and they will ultimately grow in heart and spirit as well.

GOP has recently moved to the HJ Cheonwon Complex from Sun Hwa Arts School in Seoul in September 1, 2016 and True Mother gave the school a new name: Sunhak Institute of Korean Studies for Foreign Blessed Children. True Parents wish to enable international blessed children to have a chance to learn True Parents’ language, faith and tradition. Since the appointment of Yeon Ah Moon as Principal at the end of 2014, she has taken a great interest in the students and the program, and worked with staff to strengthen it.
