Kings Education Media Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Kings Education Partners With The Gilbert School
Kings Education is delighted to announce its new partnership with The Gilbert School in Connecticut, a highly respected co-educational private secondary school, rated within the top 10% of high schools in the US. As part of the partnership agreement the Kings international recruitment and marketing network will be responsible for the recruitment of well-qualified international students for entry to Gilbert. This will deliver both a stand-alone US high school experience and an integrated pathway to a US university. Kings will also provide logistical support to The Gilbert School and will open an International Study Center on campus. This will offer a pre-sessional program to international students as well as dedicated counseling and support services. International students recruited to the Gilbert School will have the choice of several academic programs.
High School Preparation (HSPP): This program is delivered by Kings on campus for students who need additional language or study skills development before their main Diploma program at Gilbert. Entry is from TOEFL iBT 20. Diploma Program (years 9 – 12): This is Gilbert’s traditional co-educational secondary program. Students with a minimum GPA of 2.5 may begin in year 9, 10, 11 or 12 with the intention of obtaining their high school diploma through Gilbert. Study Abroad Program (years 9 – 12): This one-semester or one-year program is intended for students who do not wish to earn or obtain a diploma but wish to have a unique cultural experience in the US. It can be followed during years 9, 10, 11 or 12. Accelerated College Degree Program (years 11 – 12): This program is recognized by one of Kings’ partner universities and enables year 11 and 12 students to complete one year of university-level education while at Gilbert, thus circumventing their freshman year at university.
Dr. Anthony Serio, Head of School/Superintendent of The Gilbert School commented:
“King’s Education is a unique opportunity for The Gilbert School to bring students from all over the globe to our Campus. I am impressed with their professionalism and very distinctive marketing that attracts students to their United States schools. We are proud to be a partner with Kings Education.”
Jose Antonio Flores, US Managing Director of Kings Education added:
“Our relationship with the faculty and management of The Gilbert School have always been warm, positive and inspiring. I am delighted that we will be able to offer students from all over the world an outstanding high school experience and an ideal pathway to university at this wonderfully supportive School.”
Kings is actively recruiting for entry to the main school from September 2019.
