If you are wondering what to do in the US school , then we are ready to answer all your questions in this article. Indeed, the education obtained at the American school makes it possible to continue studies in America , to obtain a prestigious diploma and a sought-after specialty - who will abandon such tempting prospects? But the admission to America has its own peculiarities and subtleties, and Smapse professionals are ready to do everything to facilitate your admission.
The first thing to choose is the type of school, state or private. Of course, most foreigners prefer private ones: they are more loyal to foreign students, provide the best conditions, equipment and technology of the campus, occupy the top places in the national ratings. The most noticeable of them is the high price. But remember that talented and talented children can count on various grants, grants, support of educational funds that can significantly reduce your financial expenses.
The second - take into account the age of the child. Here the principle "The earlier - the better": the earlier a child starts to study at an American school (5-8 years), the easier it will be to adapt to the new environment, language and culture. Nevertheless, for many Russian students it is easier to get a basic school certificate at home, and in the US to enter the programs of the senior classes (for example,IB or High School Diploma , 15-18 years). Such an approach also makes sense: for one to two years of education in the final program, the student will significantly improve his English and knowledge of academic subjects in order to enroll in the chosen college or university and receive a highly cited educational certificate.
Third - the level of knowledge of the English language . Many prestigious schools in America organize special support courses for foreigners (EFL or ESL), but, of course, be confident in their abilities in advance. We recommend to take preparatory courses (ideally - in the school where the entry is planned) -summer program , academic trimester , etc. Learning the language in an atmosphere of complete language immersion, in constant communication with native English speakers is incomparably more efficient and quicker than in Russia.
Remember that elite and rating schools in America arrange a fairly strict selection for students - there is a selective principle. The deadlines for submitting documents and applications are strictly observed: in some cases applications can be considered after the end of the main period, but only if there are seats on the chosen program. Smapse specialists will help you to properly compile an application and collect the required package of documents, carry out a professional translation, help with visa registration and even write you down at the embassy. Usually entering the US school requires the following documents:
- Passport passport, passport-size photographs
- Completed application form school
- A report card with marks for the last 2-3 years from the previous place of study
- Letters from teachers (in the priority of the teacher of English and mathematics) and the class teacher
- Essay on the topic "Why do I want to study at your school?" (Written by the applicant himself) [ 999.31] All sorts of certificates, awards, cups and medals, certificates and thank you letters - everything that can distinguish you among other students and impress the admissions committee.
During the selection of an educational institution, we carefully consider all your wishes, requests and requirements. Smapse company can organize a study tour to the selected American school - so you can personally see the comfort and equipment of the campus, look at the living conditions, talk with the director, teachers, administrative staff and educators. We will do our best to make the entry into the US school as easy and successful as possible!
