Our trilingual program is specially designed for any students who want to become fluent in 3 languages (Khmer, English and Chinese). The Khmer program offered is the same as that in the Cambodian state schools. The International program is a very demanding course of study following the same curriculum as many schools in the United States. The core subjects are taught in English for half of each day and the necessary Khmer classes to meet government graduation requirements are taught for the other half of the day. Additionally, Chinese is offered as a foreign language beginning at K-4, giving our students the opportunity to be trilingual.
The Khmer program at ALIS is the same as in the Cambodian state schools as required by the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. Students are required to write the Grade Nine State Examination and the High School Exit Examination with all the other students in the Cambodian Public Schools.
Upon satisfactory completion of the Khmer Course of study and successfully passing the high school exit examination prepared by the Ministry of Education, Cambodian students will be awarded a diploma by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Royal Government of Cambodia. This certificate is the same as that issued by the public schools in Cambodia.
The International curriculum at ALIS is based on American standards of teaching English for native speakers. The program offers the same quality of education as the schools in the United States. The textbooks and curriculum are identical to the schools in the United States. English is the primary language used in all areas.
Upon satisfactory completion of grade 12, the English curriculum high school diploma will be awarded by the Abundant Life International School and accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International-Asia (ACSI-Asia).
Chinese as a third language
Our Chinese Program derives its international standard from the education system in China. Chinese language is taught as the third language and it is part of our Cambodian Curriculum.
