Sara Al Bgumi, Mawheba Program Counselor at Al Faisaliah Islamic Schools, said: “We tirelessly work to create a rich and stimulating learning environment that shapes creative and talented students who will grow to develop our society and our nation. And from this philosophy, everyone at our school, as a part of Maarif for Education, has ensured that we cease all growth opportunities whether local or international to benefit our students and prepare them for the future job market. It was with pleasure that we supported our students throughout the registration and application process, and we will continue to do so throughout and after they complete this comprehensive program.”
This year-long program prepares summer camps that aim to simulate the future academic experience and prepare students to adapt to the teaching system and coexist in other societies by raising their academic level and preparing them for TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, AP & A level.
The program will also roll out workshops throughout the Kingdom, in which qualified students are required to invest in a significant amount of effort and time.
