IIS is a college preparatory school, and we successfully ready our students for their lives beyond graduation. Undergraduate programs require students to have intellect, confidence, social awareness and curiosity to allow them to excel endlessly. At IIS they will have acquired these essentials and we expect our graduates to attend the best institutions of higher learning. Students attend universities around the globe raising the IIS name and following their dreams.

The university counselor works with the parents and students to help them with college searches, application processes, scholarship and financial aid navigation and college entrance exam preparations which include SATs, ACT, IELTS* and TOEFL**.

Students are responsible for their final choice of institution and this is done after they have mapped out their choices, thorough research of majors, institutes, and self-reflection to where their place to be is. This begins as early as the junior and freshman years.

The counselor is always available to the students even after the applications have been submitted. Advice is also given on emails and suggested replies in addition to final university enrollment. For students studying abroad, guidance can be given when it comes to visa applications upon formally accepting an admission offer.

*IELTS - International English Language Testing System
Students planning to pursue higher education in the United Kingdom may need to sit for the IELTS. Where in most cases universities will accept either the TOEFL or the IELTS, there are a few institutions in the UK that will only accept the IELTS. Registration for the IELTS is through the British Council.

*TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language
All students studying for three years or longer in a country where the primary language is not English should take the TOEFL, which is now an Internet-based test (iBT). It is recommended that students take the TOEFL in the summer after their junior year. Registration can be done online. Although many centers offer the iBT,we strongly recommend that you choose AMIDEAST as your test center whenever possible.
