OPEN A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES We offer a range of internationally recognized programs that will help you meet your educational goals, prepare you for your future at a prestigious university, and expand your horizons.
HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is a globally recognized qualification for students aged 14 to 16. The IGCSE offers optimal preparation for students who plan on continuing with the A-Level or International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program after Grade 10.
A traditional American high school education, including a wide variety of academic subjects, sports, and extracurricular activities, is ideal for students between the ages of 14 and 19 who are interested in a greater amount of flexibility in subject choices. Students enrolled in the High School Diploma program also have the option of taking IB exams for the subjects they enjoy most.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma prepares students aged 16 to 19 for success at university. The rigorous IB curriculum is a broad internationally recognized qualification grounded in the concepts of inquiry, critical thinking and active participation.
Successful A-Level exam results are a standard pathway to acceptance at universities in the UK. Our A-Level program ensures students aged 16 to 19 achieve outstanding exam results on subjects that allow them to focus on their individual talents, strengths and interests.
