Partnerships for AISC Students

Stanford University Pre-Collegiate International Institutes

The American International School is a partner school with Stanford University bringing students across Cyprus to their prestigious, two-week residential summer program in the USA. Students who attend the Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes are exposed to university level content and teaching style in a classroom that fosters communication, innovation, and creativity. Courses, labs and workshops draw on a range of subjects taught at The Stanford School of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine and Business. The style of instruction is designed to foster a passion for intellectual pursuit and allows students to engage in a transformational educational experience while exploring various post-secondary academic programs and career interests to help students determine their future pathways. With a select number of spaces, Stanford University has entrusted the American International School in Cyprus, to evaluate, screen and select applicants for the program.

100mentors.com

AISC has partnered with 100mentors , an online platform that pairs high school students with industry role-models on the basis of professional and academic orientation. By partnering with 100 mentors we are able to help our students determine their area of study and encourage them to pursue that area when heading off to university. The 100 Mentor Motto is that of Benjamin Franklin: “If you don’t make a plan, you are planning to fail” and so via this platform, AISC aspires to create a safe environment, where our students are able to take a conscious decision in pursuing an academic degree suitable for them.
