America-Mideast Education and Testing Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST) announced today that the internationally recognized college entrance exam, the SAT® (formerly called the Scholastic Aptitude Test), will be administered at the Indian School Muscat, in Darsait (Way No.1950, Building No.3175), during the 2010-2011 academic year. Certified by Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Princeton, New Jersey to administer the SAT®, AMIDEAST includes this service in its portfolio of programs to facilitate the U.S. university application process for students and professionals who wish to obtain higher education degrees in America.
Nearly every university in America uses the SAT® as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student’s readiness for undergraduate study. While secondary school grades are also a useful indicator of how students will perform in college, there is great variation in grading standards and course rigor within and across schools. More than 80 years ago, the College Board – a not-for-profit membership association based in the U.S. with the mission of connecting students to college success and opportunity – created the first standardized college entrance test to help colleges and universities identify students who could succeed at their institutions. ETS now produces the SAT® for the College Board, and over two million students around the world take the test each year. For more information about the SAT®, visit http://www.collegeboard.com/

For the second year in a row, AMIDEAST offered its “American Summer Camp,” a unique opportunity for local 7-15 year olds to enjoy the summertime while interacting in a total immersion English environment. Campers enjoyed a fun-filled, English-learning experience with bi-weekly field trips to local attractions, daily arts and crafts activities, and visits to AMIDEAST’s fully-functional computer lab—all while learning about world cultures through the 2010 Camp’s theme, “World Cup 2010.”
“The camp offers a different approach,” said Isaac Reynolds, AMIDEAST English Language Instructor and Summer Camp Manager. “In schools, children sometimes get bored by the formal way of learning. Here we are focusing on ways to make children internalize the language. They discover that it can be fun to learn English, and we guarantee that they campers will learn new things every single day at the camp.”
