Today's Scholars. Tomorrow's Leaders.

Welcome to ASSIST Poland

 ASSIST Poland was established to help young Polish students currently in the 10th grade who would like to spend one year as exchange students in the United States as 11th graders. Candidates should note that very few ASSIST member schools offer the IB curriculum; you should assume that you would enroll in a traditional American-style curriculum.

Our work in Poland began in the 2010/11 academic year. Our first Polish Scholar distinguished herself in her American independent school, and this encouraged us to establish a permanent office in Poland. Ultimately, 22 Polish students have studied in the States under our auspices.
