Message from the Founder
“Early bird hops further.” – Czech Proverb
Working on the same philosophy, at ALPS, we encourage students to start shaping their goals early in life by equipping them with well-crafted knowledge solutions in the international education sector so that they can make informed choices in their future.
Today, college admissions span beyond grades and standardized test scores. Elite universities are interested in students who will make valuable contribution to the school’s community. Therefore, though most universities evaluate a student’s academics and personal journey of the past couple of years, preparation often starts much earlier. Applicants need to prove that they will meet the academic demands in their school of choice. In addition, they need to demonstrate a genuine interest in shaping their future community. These criteria are not defined by specific cutoffs in scores or a particular formula. The ALPS methodology encourages students to identify and apply their strengths and interests to make a difference both, inside and outside the classroom.
At ALPS, we do a detailed profiling of every student that includes a scientifically designed Aptitude Test, which is followed by career counseling. We help our students develop a holistic profile based on their interests and life goals through various activities that extend even beyond the classroom. . With feel at home environment, ALPS strives to develop candidates into thoroughly equipped scholars, prepared to enter and succeed in the colleges and universities of their choice.
