Why choose the American Baccalaureate Global Leadership Program?

U.S. universities value more than a high GPA and top SAT or ACT scores for admissions, especially at highly ranked schools. They expect more than excellence in academics. The best impression is made by those high school students who demonstrate the capacity for leadership - effective communication, moral character, and an ability to inspire others. Great leaders use such qualities to help others achieve great things that they cannot reach on their own, and top U.S. universities pride themselves on producing future leaders.

AB Global Leadership is a program offered in cooperation with our partner universities to provide an advantage to international students wishing to pursue university studies in America. Earning university credits while studying high school communication, ethics, and
how to inspire and motivate others puts you ahead of students who only have good grades and entrance exam scores.

This program can be pursued as part of a two-year summer study experience, or as part of American Scholar Group’s Study in America program starting in 9th grade.

Available Courses:

Communication (Public Speaking)
Special Topics: Leadership
