Cayman International School began as Faulkner Academy with high ideals in October of 1994. The school was purchased by International Schools Services (ISS) in 2002 and the name of the school changed to Cayman International School (CIS) in 2003. CIS is a private, college preparatory, non-sectarian, co-educational school for students from two years old through Grade 12. It was established to provide an American/International educational program for the dependents of the multi-national professionals living in Cayman. The school buildings were provided through the generosity of the William and Claire Dart Foundation.
