The question that I want you to ask yourself is, “What makes the IB Diploma Programme at American Youth Academy the right choice for my future?” For some students, it is to jumpstart their college admissions process by the fact of having 30 credits accepted by many universities both domestic and abroad after earning the IB Diploma. For others, it is because of the prestige of having earned the IB Diploma that symbolizes perseverance, academic commitment, and the ability to think critically not only as a student, but as a leader. Whatever the reason, the most important thing is that you feel ready to transform yourself from what you are now to what you can become.
American Youth Academy is unlike any other school because we don’t want simply excellent students; we want future Nobel Prize winners, those who carry the potential to make a difference in the world. Whether through our rigorous IB academic areas, CAS, TOK, or the extended essay, the connections that our students make is first within themselves to find their true calling, and then to the world around them. It’s who you want to be and less about what you want to do.
If you are sure that this is the right choice for you, then the best advice that I can provide is to not procrastinate. Take this application with you, review the materials, and submit everything before the deadline. This will show our screening committee your sincerity in the urgent need to make a difference, and going through this application process will provide a glimpse into what it means to be an IB Diploma Programme student at American Youth Academy.
