Ocean of Light International School is an educational institution dedicated to the development of the spiritual, intellectual, and physical potential of its students in the unique setting of the Kingdom of Tonga. The school offers educational programs for students as young as three years old (Kindy) up to High School Certificate level (Form 7 equivalent) and utilizes a highly respected international curriculum from Cambridge University in the United Kingdom (Cambridge International Examination Program).

The establishment of the school is the result of a desire of a growing number of people to contribute to the betterment of society through educational programs that prepare individuals to capably and confidently participate in construction of strong, successful communities. To achieve this, the Ocean of Light International Schools aims to develop in the students those capacities, skills, habits and attitudes necessary to enable them to provide for their families; to effectively contribute to the peace, prosperity and tranquility of mankind and society; and to participate in the creation of new institutions, processes and relationships as they are defined and established.
The Ocean of Light International Schools is directly administered by a Board of Education nominated by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Tonga. The Bahá’í Faith is the newest of the World Religions. The main purpose of the Faith is to bring about the unity of mankind. One of the principle implications of this is that the development of moral character is crucial in the education and training of individuals and equal emphasis must be placed on this area as well as training in all of the arts and sciences that will be of benefit to the world. The school strives to incorporate Bahá’í ideals, principles and concepts into the curriculum and organisation of the school in a way that does not indoctrinate but instead focuses on the spiritual principles and values that are common to and unite all the religions and belief systems in the world.
