On May 22nd at the Opera House in Ho Chi Minh City, the APU American International School held a graduation ceremony for 70 students who completed high school. They have achieved outstanding academic accomplishments and earned a scholarship with a total value of more than 4 million USD (equivalent to about 90 billion VND).
The school board also shares the same goal in assisting students in receiving the most beneficial advantages after graduation. For example, the American University in Vietnam (AUV) announced to award scholarships to 100% of graduates at APU depend on the level of students’ achievements. This scholarship helps them to have the best financial support when they complete their bachelor’s degree program at AUV and continue to study in prestigious universities to obtain Master’s and Doctoral degree. Alternatively, students can choose to attend the first two years at AUV and then transfer to other US universities to complete a bachelor’s degree or a higher education program.
In school year 2018-2019, more than a quarter of 70 graduates had finished their high school program a year early. Specially, Dang Hoang Quan, a student from APU – American International School Da Nang campus completed his high school curriculum at the end of grade 10. This excellent achievement is resulted from the Fast-track Program at APU
