If a student falls into one or more of the following categories, the International Study Center (ISC) would be the recommended option before Main School.
1. English language development
A student who is not yet at the English language level required for main School entry.
He or she therefore requires specialised English development from experts in ESL provision.
2. US education system
A student who is academically able, but has had little or no experience of the US education system.
He or she therefore requires a program of carefully managed adjustment to a new way of learning, devised and taught by experts in the academic needs of international students.
3. Social and cultural soft landing
A student who is younger or less confident, perhaps because this is their first time away from home.
Therefore he or she is in need of a “soft landing” into US Prep School life via a carefully managed preparatory pastoral programme specially created for international students.
