Ever thought of University in the USA?

Living Abroad / Travel
Financial Support
Place not dependant on Final Grades
Sports Scholarships
Flexible Study

These are just some of the advantages of going to University in the USA.

More and more students are looking to study in the US, in Jersey we have contacts with several agencies that can help facilitate entry into the US university system. One key element is SAT testing which universities use to assess potential students. These agencies advise, guide and tutor this testing along with the rest of the application process.

Some universities in the US offer significant financial support for international students which can extend to covering the cost of flights and travel.

If you are hurt in school a teacher must be informed. If it is at break time then if possible tell the duty teacher. If not, then any available teacher.

In the case of a serious injury then an ambulance will be called and your parents contacted by the administrative staff. Should you be taken ill during the school day permission to go home may be given. Your parents will be informed by the School Secretary and they will be expected to collect you.
