During July and August, we will again we having our Summer School Program. There run two programs during the summer, the Skill Builder Course and eh Academic Program.
The Skill Builder program is all about experiencing an intensive time in English. Students who attend have previous English experience and want to be immersed in it for a week. They enjoy a fun filled, practical experience making scientific discoveries.
The Academic Program, is for children that wish to study particular subjects during the summer.
A combination for the two programs is also possible. Please contact the school office about available space.
The programs for 2017 run for the following three sessions:
Session 1: 3 July to 19 July
Session 2: 20 July to 4 August
Session 3: 7 August to 23 August

Griggs International Academy
We would like to inform all interested people that as of 1 April 2017, Axis International School is officially affiliated to Griggs International Academy. The ownership of the school is still with Y.K. Mahr Corporation and has not changed.
For our students, this will mean much quicker grading as their test are no longer sent to America. All student records, and official grade reports will still be issued by Griggs International Academy, USA. We are also looking forward to adding exciting new courses for the students to enjoy.
