GWIS was established in the United States to help American and international secondary students make a smooth transition into the American higher educational system and culture. The goal of GWIS is to equip each student with the necessary skills needed in order to succeed in any U.S. College or University they decide to apply, and to empower them with invaluable knowledge and experience for lifelong learning. Students graduating from GWIS can seek admission into any U.S. College or University of their choosing. Admission to U.S. Colleges and Universities are based on a number of factors, including high school performance (i.e., Grade Point Average (GPA), teacher recommendations, etc.), SAT/ACT scores, as well as requirements of the specific U.S. College and University, which may include extra-curricular activities and volunteer work.
