College Counseling and Academic Advising
AIS students who are planning to study abroad can receive guidance from the school’s college counselor. The students are advised about which colleges or universities abroad may fit their interests and abilities, they receive advice on taking the SAT or TOEFL examinations, writing their college essays and planning the college careers. They are assisted with the Common Application, an online application service used by many U.S. universities. Additionally, guest speakers from Education USA at the United States Embassy in Addis Ababa, are invited to give student and parent presentations and advice about the American higher education system. College admissions officers from Columbia University, New York University, Abu Dhabi, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Manchester University and others have made presentations to AIS students.
Students also participate in annual college fairs. After only four graduating classes, Andinet International School students have been accepted at the following colleges and universities: Stanford, Harvard, Emory, Brown, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Bard’s College at Simon’s Rock, Illinois Wesleyan, Manchester University, University of Minnesota, Florida Polytechnic University, University of Arizona and others.
PASCH German Language Program
Andinet International School is part of the initiative “Schools: Partners for the Future” (PASCH) which is a worldwide network of about 1,500 partner schools that promote learning German as a foreign language. Through a collaborative agreement with The Goethe Institute, AIS students in grade 7 and above have the opportunity to study the German language after school. Each year, two outstanding students from the German language course are chosen to travel to Germany to attend a two week youth camp where they practice their German language skills with students from around the world. The trip is sponsored by the Goethe Institute.
