The program includes:

  • Counseling center
  • Exam preparation courses (SAT, TOEFL, IELTS) for admission to universities in the U.S. , Canada and Europe, for 10th, 11th and 12th grade students.

 

Within the framework of the program, representatives from leading universities visit the Schools on a regular basis, to inform students about the curriculum and academic life in these institutions.

Corporate Programs are career orientation programs based on the principles of experiential learning where participants learn through observation and interaction with executives of an organization or a company.

The programs last four weeks and are divided into two phases. In the first phase, students are introduced to the basic principles of operation of a company while in the second phase they acquire experiential experience on its premises on a daily basis, participating in meetings and dialogues with executives and thus familiarizing themselves with the subject.
