Currently, APU American International Schools is quality-assured and certified as a member by Cognia™, the world's largest education accreditation organization.

APU American International Schools has recently expanded its list of partner international education organizations to include Cognia, the world's leading education accreditation organization; College Board, the developer of standardized tests such as SAT, AP, and MAP; WiDa, the leading US teaching design and assessment organization; and other prestigious educational programs and organizations such as Common Core, NWEA, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS),... This achievement is further solidified by the school's recognition from the Council of International Schools (CIS).

CIS accreditation was granted to APU American International Schools based on the rigorous CIS International Accreditation Framework, which encompasses 8 domains with 45 comprehensive standards covering almost all critical aspects of school operations, including the school's educational philosophy, governance system and sustainable operational model, 21st-century-aligned curriculum, high-quality academic standards, a school environment that promotes students' physical and mental health, international-standard facilities, family-school collaboration, and human resource policies.

Currently, APU American International Schools is quality-assured and certified as a member by Cognia™, the world's largest education accreditation organization. Cognia is the world's leading education accreditation organization with over 125 years of experience, assessing and accrediting over 30,000 public and private schools across the United States and in over 70 countries and territories, educating over 16 million students. /// Cognia's predecessor was AdvancED, an organization that owned three of the top six accreditation agencies in the United States and the world: North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA CASI), Council on Accreditation and School Improvement of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS CASI) and Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC).To receive accreditation from this prestigious organization, APU must demonstrate its commitment to its goals and objectives, including its mission, vision, and core values; ensure the safety and well-being of the school community; and provide high-quality teaching methods and curricula through effective school management.

 


Dr. Tran Nguyen Thy Binh, Superintendent of APU American International Schools, affirmed: "APU has excellently met all the rigorous criteria of both Cognia and CIS, from its educational goals and mission, international-standard curriculum, training quality, graduation standards, student quality enhancement programs, satisfaction with facilities and infrastructure, to other strict and comprehensive requirements."

The partnership and membership with CIS is a testament to the school's relentless efforts and serious investment in improving the quality of education, providing a comprehensive international-standard education environment for generations of APU students.

APU American International Schools is licensed by the Ministry of Education and Training to teach the US program to Vietnamese students and foreign students in Vietnam. The program at APU is a system with strong connections between the knowledge and skills required for students from kindergarten to grade 12 so that after graduating from high school, students can be successful in any university environment in the world, most notably in the United States. Upon graduation from high school, APU graduates are directly admitted to prestigious universities around the world without the need for IETLS/SAT/ACT or the IB Diploma Programme; including schools in the US such as the University of California System (UC - Berkeley, UC - Davis, UC - Irvine), FIT, VCU, CMU, ASU, UMKC, California State University, CWU, in Canada such as University of British Columbia, in Korea such as Korea University, Yonsei University, and in Australia such as University of Sydney (Unconditional offer of admission), Australian National University….In addition, The American University in Vietnam - AUV students can complete a 3-4 year bachelor's degree (BA, BS) at AUV and be supported directly into the master's program (MA, MS) of prestigious universities without the need to demonstrate GRE & GMAT entrance scores.

Every year, 90% of former APU students who study abroad at prestigious universities around the world, most notably in the United States, achieve outstanding results from the first semester and are ranked on the Dean's List.


In addition to the Credit Accumulation Program that allows students to shorten the time to complete their undergraduate studies in the United States, thereby reducing many other costs, APU American International Schools also encourages students to enroll in the College Bridge Program - Dual Enrollment Program, which is only available at APU. This special program is designed by APU Educational Development Group and prestigious partner universities in the United States. After graduating from high school, students only need about two years to complete their bachelor's degree at prestigious universities in the United States. This is a special advantage only for APU students, because if students from high schools other than APU want to participate in this program, they must have a SAT score of over 90% to be accepted.
