At CIA FIRST International School we want to see all of our graduates continue in their educational pursuits beyond their time at CIA FIRST International School. To strengthen our students’ knowledge about their college options we are developing partnerships with universities to recognize and endorse the quality of education received at CIA FIRST International School, to acknowledge support for consideration of CIA FIRST International School graduates, to provide accurate information about the university’s enrollment guidelines and timelines, and to have school’s offer tuition reductions to CIA FIRST International School graduates. The university partnerships that CIA FIRST International School pursues are with top level universities both domestically and abroad; and with a diverse array of strong colleges. CIA FIRST International School also seeks to only develop partnerships with universities abroad if they have a strong international student support program.
There are three pillars that support a child’s education and development:
The community supports a child’s education and development by providing health care, stimulating and supporting the child’s interests and education (in areas such as art venues, zoos, sports teams, and botanical gardens), providing opportunities for work experiences and internships, and providing opportunities to students to develop leadership experience and skills. CIA FIRST International School seeks to continue developing a deep and broad list of community partners who will offer CIA FIRST International School students and their families discounts on services and will also share with CIA FIRST International School students tours of their business to peak student understanding and interest in different vocational areas.
