AISK's Three Paths to University

As students leave middle school they step into the last 4 years of their secondary school life and the world of college preparation. While some students may know exactly what career path they would like to follow and then choose the right university and major, a great many students do not. How do they prepare for university, and have the right qualifications, taking into account their strengths as a student?

At AISK we have 3 paths to choose from that will get students into the college of their choice. All students that graduate from AISK earn a US Diploma and this forms the foundation for the qualifications needed to get into a university in the USA, Canada and Europe.

Path 1

  • US High School Diploma
  • High School GPA
  • SAT/ACT
  • SAT Subject Test

This path allows more time to focus on:

  • Passing high school courses with a high GPA on the transcript
  • Preparing for SAT/SAT Subject or ACT tests
  • Extra curricular development (community service & broadening interests)
  • Compiling a portfolio for the art student
  • Taking part in productions and developing the craft for a drama student
  • Developing athletic skills and tournament experience for the athlete

The advantage is:

  • A broad curriculum for those who have not yet decided on a specific major or career path
  • No high stakes exams
  • No need for transcript interpretation by admission offices

 

Path 2

  • US High School Diploma
  • High School GPA
  • SAT/ACT
  • SAT Subject Test
  • IB Certificate

In choosing Path 2, students can build on the Path 1 requirements by choosing specific subjects to read at the IB level. This provides them with a distinct advantage in specific majors that may require strong passes in specified subjects for acceptance e.g. chemistry and physics for engineering.

The advantage is:

  • University credit for specific subjects
  • Added rigor increases students competitive edge in the college admissions process
  • The broad curriculum suits students who have not yet decided on a specific major or career path

 

Path 3

  • US High School Diploma
  • High School GPA
  • SAT/ACT
  • SAT Subject Test
  • IB Diploma

In addition to Path 1, the student will benefit from the further development of their research and analytical skills that will give them an overall advantage in all subject areas.

  • Preparation for college level courses and load
  • The opportunity to complete an academic research paper, with guidance, prior to going to University
  • Advanced placement potential up to as much as their freshman year in university
  • The broad curriculum suits students who have not yet decided on a specific major or career path

This path is for the more academically motivated student, as time dedication is required. The course produces a student that has an incredible work ethic, works well under pressure, is a deep analytical thinker, a problem solver and cares what happens in the world around them.
