Dear Parents,

As you may already know, the College offers students an opportunity to sign up for special preparatory courses for the “Scholastic Aptitude Test” (S.A.T.).

Since many of our students have expressed a desire to continue their studies at universities in the United Kingdom or the United States, we would like to point out the main criteria for university acceptance in those countries:

  1. Student performance (GPA) in High School courses.For the USA, 9th grade Junior High School grades are also taken into consideration.
  2. For universities in the USA, scores on the SAT Reasoning Test (Critical Reading & Writing, Math skills), the SAT Subject Tests as well as TOEFL exam.
  3. Candidates’ extra-curricular activities and interests, as well as evidence of a well-rounded and mature personality. Therefore, students should be encouraged to participate in athletic, cultural and theatrical events as well as clubs, contribute to school publications, and engage in volunteer work.

The special courses that the College is offering free of charge are as follow:

  1. Foundation for the Redesigned SAT R.T. (Critical Reading & Writing): open to 10th grade students (whose final grade in 9th grade English was at least 16).
