President’s Welcome

Welcome to the National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys (NEIGB). Founded in 1862 by American missionaries, NEIGB is an Evangelical School affiliated with the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon. The School is accredited by the Lebanese government and is also a U.S. accredited, university preparatory school, committed to providing educational excellence through standards-based Lebanese curriculum leading to the Baccalaureate Certificate, and a standard-based, internationally enriched American curriculum leading to a High School Diploma, altogether serving a student body of around 1700.

The National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys has long been recognized as one of the leading, non-profit schools in Lebanon. We are proud of this School’s glorious history and of the legacy it has built in Lebanon for the past 156 years. We are definitely pleased that you are perusing our website and possibly considering applying for admission to our School. If admission to this School is your aim, we definitely look forward to welcoming you soon to our community of learners.

The National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys is a student-centered school where the focus is on learning; it is a school where the feel of community is real, and where children learn and develop in a friendly, nurturing, creative and safe environment, supported by highly qualified and dedicated faculty and staff. Take some time and surf our website, and then feel free to call the Admissions Office to request a visit to our spectacular campus, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and secluded campuses in Lebanon.

Upon receiving your request to visit, an admissions counselor will call to inform you of the visit date and time, where you will be given a tour of the campus and introduced to your future faculty, administrators and friends. During this visit, you will develop a good understanding of our NEIGB community, curriculum and the myriad of extracurricular activities our school is known for. As President of this School and parent of one boy, I can proudly say that I am thrilled that my child attends NEIGB and is a part of its community of learners.

Your inquiry regarding admission to NEIGB is important to us, and we are ready to provide you with the information you will need to make the right choice. You may write to our Admissions Office at: or call +961 7 721 817/806 – Ext: 244 – in order to make arrangements for a school tour.
