New Student Orientation
Whether classified as full-time or part-time, we enroll all AESA Prep International students in the AESA Orientation Course before their official enrollment date begins. This course will highlight relevant school policies and procedures, explain student expectations, offer tips on how to successfully complete coursework on time and help students familiarize themselves with the learning management system we use.
We will also meet with students and parents via Skype to explain how the program works and address any questions or concerns. We provide parents with their own login that lets them track progress and grades. We require all students to complete the orientation process before giving them access to their courses. Parents should also take an active role in the process, and feel free to reach out with any questions at any time.
All full-time AESA students will work with our academic counselors to develop an individualized academic plan (IAP) that matches the student’s interests and ensures they are able to successfully complete the AESA program on time. Our counselors will also examine an incoming student’s academic record and give credit, wherever possible, for courses the student has satisfactorily completed at previous schools. Academic counseling is an ongoing process, and we are happy to advise students continuously as they progress through the AESA academic program.
AESA Prep International will also assign an adult advocate to each student upon enrollment. The advocate’s overall purpose is to provide encouragement and support to the student throughout their educational experience and serve as the primary point of contact for resolving any issues the student may have.
As our full-time students approach graduation, our academic counselors will guide them through the application and admissions process. We will also help student athletes navigate the NCAA eligibility process, which is necessary for those who hope to play sports at university. Our goal is to help students gain admittance into the university of their choice. By the time they graduate, they will be prepared for success in university; we also want to make sure they can get their foot in the door.
