Academic Access Program (AAP)

What is the AAP?

The Academic Access Program (AAP) is a structured English immersion program designed to strengthen the academic proficiency and English literacy skills of  students whose goal is to enroll in the mainstream Elementary programs at NIS. AAP curricula are developed and continually updated to meet the needs of the students, and are based closely on the mainstream curricula.

Enrollment in the AAP provides a culturally diverse environment for its students. In this global environment, AAP students interact with classmates & teachers from around the globe to engage in a course of academic study which enables them to acquire essential skills and knowledge that meet international standards of education.

Every semester, each AAP student is assigned rigorous academic goals based on NIS Mainstream Transfer Criteria. These goals represent the personal benchmarks to be met as a prerequisite to graduate from the program.

In addition to daily lessons in the core subjects of English, Math, and Science, AAP students also enjoy regular classes in the subjects of Computer Technology, Physical Education, Drama, Art, and Movement.

The AAP provides an immersive English environment from 8 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in a multi-cultural classroom taught by native English speakers.
