Brandon Hall School partners with schools around the world to offer a dual diploma. This program is possible because Brandon Hall and partner schools are AdvancEd accredited, meaning that the schools’ process of continuing improvement and accreditation standards are the same. Two important aspects of the program include deep immersion in American culture and community service in the Atlanta area. All students selected must attain 85% level of proficiency in the English language to be eligible. Upon successful completion of either program the student will receive a dual diploma, allowing him/her to apply a US college or university.
