The "Ivy Dream Class" is a brand item that SAIE is focusing on building, aiming at the in-depth cultivating of top students with excellent academic ability and development potential, to further strengthen their academic ability and improve their overall quality. The "Ivy Dream Class" is led by the former admission officer of Columbia University, collecting teachers from top universities at home and abroad and resources inside and outside the school to help more students get prepared for the Ivy League universities and other top universities in the world.
There are 5-10 students in each grade. After signing up voluntarily, students need to pass the sifting of GPA and standardized score, written examination and interview selection.
The teaching progress and daily affairs are supervised by the teaching homeroom teacher, and the plan for applying for colleges and the pre-university curriculum setting are controlled by the college counselor homeroom teacher.
In addition to collecting teachers with rich teaching experience and outstanding achievements within the school, senior teachers outside the school are hired to conduct advanced lectures with higher level of difficulty and standard; at the same time, we select suitable and customized background improvement projects (the required expenses are paid by the school) such as competition guidance, scientific research projects and public welfare volunteer activities for each student to maximize their potential and enhance their comprehensive strength.
We provide each student with two-to-one university application planning and guidance to escort the successful application for the Ivy League universities.
