EF All the Way Concept
The EF International Academy experience is a personal one. With one-on-one guidance and support from teachers and staff at EF International Academy, students choose their own courses, their own academic programme, and ultimately their own pathway to success. At the heart of that is a personal teaching method that also guide students every step of the way.
Local admissions counselors help students identify the right campus and academic programme best suited to their goals. Once admitted, admissions counselors continue to serve as liaisons between the school and family back home so that parents always have a personal contact who can speak to them in their native language regarding their child’s progress and school updates
Teachers are the most powerful source of support on every EF International Academy campus. Speaking 45 languages, with experience living and working in 50 countries, their backgrounds are as diverse as the students they teach. They know firsthand what it’s like to live or study in another country, and take great effort to help students feel comfortable and excel in their learning environment.
Personal advisers help manage the demands of a rigorous academic curriculum with the excitement –and challenges – of being away from home. Advisers meet with their students oneon-one every single week to make sure that they are thriving in the high school environment. Mock examinations, constructive
feedback, and progress reports are a regular part of academic life.
Dorm parents offer 24/7 guidance to students living in the EF International Academy dormitories, whether they need help with homework or support in developing the confidence they need to achieve their goals. Dorm parents live on site with the students the entire academic year.
Host parents offer a safe and secure environment to students who choose to live in host family accommodation. All host families are carefully selected and have hosted international students for
University placement advisers guide students through the university placement process beginning their first month on campus. Advisers conduct weekly meetings with students, as well as ongoing consultation with parents, to identify the best universities for attaining individual goals.
Graduation and Beyond
Alumni are an equally important part of the EF experience. EF International Academy Alumni Association ensures that students stay connected to the invaluable network of global peers they create during their stay. Alumni also help current students secure internships and further guide them through the university advising process. Alumni currently work around the globe in top international companies like PwC, KPMG, Ernst & Young and CERN.
