Columbia University Summer Program: Registration

18 Jan

We are excited to announce our second year of partnership with Columbia University by welcoming back Elite Direction, a summer enrichment academy affiliated with the university.

With first time enrollment open to 9th and 10th graders and re-enrollment to 11th graders, this program is designed to introduce students to the kinds of thinking and writing that will be demanded of them at top-tier institutions.

This year the academy will run from May 28th-June 4th on the ASK campus. It will offer students seven days of working with Ivy League college instructors and professors, and those who complete the course will receive an official certificate from Teachers College, Columbia University. Students who graduate from the academy with distinction will receive a personalized letter of recommendation.

We are proud to host the only program officially sponsored by Columbia University Teacher College in the Middle East. Students who are interested in applying should visit Applications are due by February 1, 2018, and questions can be sent to Garrick Yau at
