What is Academica International Studies?
Academica International Studies (AIS) is a premier online high school based in the USA that enables students living in Korea to earn an American High School Diploma that is equivalent to any high school diploma given to an American student in the USA. The Korean student does not leave home and receives an American Diploma along with a Korean Diploma (Dual Diploma) upon graduation from the student's local Korean High School.
AIS also assists in the Admission Process to an American University of the student's choice. While students work on their Dual Diploma they will also be matched with an American College Mentor. Our mentors are currently attending Ivy-league or equivalently academically rigorous American Universities. They meet with students in a virtual group or one-on-one setting and help each student achieve his or her needs and goals.
Below is a list of highly selective US Colleges and Universities to which mentees have earned acceptance:
University of Pennsylvania
University of Oxford
Johns Hopkins University
New York University
University of California at Berkley
University of California at Los Angeles
University of Chicago
University of Florida
University of Miami
University of North Carolina
University of Rochester
University of Southern California
University of Virginia
Washington University in St. Louis
AIS is part of the Academica family of schools which are made up of over 150 brick and mortar high performing schools across the USA. Many of the Academica served schools in Florida have been recognized at local and state levels for high academic achievement.
In 2010 we began providing our same level of high quality education to students online internationally. We started with 10 students in a small Spanish village and have now grown worldwide to provide virtual education to over 4,200 students in Spain, France, Italy, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela and Guatemala.
