At AISK we have three distinct paths to choose from that have proven to get students into the colleges and universities of their choice. All graduates of AISK earn a U.S. Diploma; this forms the foundation for the qualifications needed to get into a university in the USA, Canada, or Europe.
AISK also offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), an extraordinary and challenging two-year curriculum for students in grades 11 and 12. IBDP balances rigorous academic work, with requirements that push students outside the classroom into community service, creativity, and group activity.
Our three unique paths allow students to focus solely on the U.S. diploma, earn an IBDP certificate by taking select courses, or earn their IBDP diploma, potentially shaving an entire year off of their college career.
This path allows students to focus on high school courses with a high GPA on their transcript. Students prepare for SAT and SAT Subject Tests or the ACT test. They have more capacity to participate in extracurricular activities, community service, and exploring their broadening interests. Art students may compile a portfolio; drama students may take part in productions and further hone that craft; and developing athletes may gain tournament experience while sharpening their skills.
Students will earn/complete:
● US High School Diploma
● High School GPA
● SAT Subject Test
