The heart of any college-preparatory school is its academic program, the organizational structure of its promotion and diploma requirements as well as the qualified skills of the individuals responsible for instruction. At AIS-Salzburg, the academic program, load, promotion, and graduation requirements, academic credit system, and subject-area departments are organized along long-standing, tried-and-true standards and benchmarks that can be found in the best international boarding schools. With its focus on the intellectual development of our students, the academic program sets very high goals and is instructed by outstanding individuals with many years of experience in pedagogy as well as postgraduate studies in their individual subject areas. Unlike many international schools, AIS-Salzburg is blessed with many long-term teachers committed to our students and a very low turnover rate overall.
Successful completion of the AIS-Salzburg curricular requirements leads to the awarding of the school’s diploma which is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Alongside Advanced Placement courses and credentials as well as required language level proficiency, graduates of AIS-Salzburg are well-prepared for matriculation into university programs in North America, Europe, and worldwide.
