Welcoming Speech

As General Manager of ACT Education Solutions Ltd (AES), Inc, it is a privilege for me to welcome you to this presentation on the Global Assessment Certificate (GAC).

The mission of our parent company, ACT Inc, is to help people achieve education and workforce success. The GAC was designed for that very purpose to help young people successfully achieve their goal of pursuing a college education in a learning environment where the teaching is in English. Today, due to the good efforts of the Global Academic Pathway in sponsoring and conducting the GAC program, that opportunity exists for a growing number of students in Toronto, Canada.

Currently, the GAC is taught at local and international high schools, universities and private colleges in 12 countries throughout the world. Last academic year there were over 2500 students studying the GAC.

GAC graduates have gone on to study at universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Singapore and New Zealand. We have many stories of students successfully graduating from their first degrees and continuing on to higher degrees and/or establishing careers in many spheres of industry and business.

As one of the final steps in earning the GAC, all students are eligible to take the ACT Assessment. The ACT is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for measuring students readiness for college-level study in the United States and is accepted and used by many colleges and universities around the world.

During a meeting earlier this year, ACTs Board of Directors, which consists of 14 well known and highly respected U.S. education and business leaders, expressed its strong commitment to the GAC program. They, and the ACT and AES staff, are committed to helping an ever growing number of students in Canada access the GAC and become better prepared for college.

In 2009, ACT celebrated its 50th anniversary. In 2010 AES will celebrate its fifth anniversary. We believe that, with the support of centres such as the Global Academic Pathway, we can accomplish great things together in the years ahead. In that regard, what could possibly be greater than helping young people entrusted to our care to achieve their dreams This is our commitment to you.

I am sure that you will find this presentation informative. Listen carefully and ask questions. Deciding how to prepare for an overseas education is one of the most important decisions that you will make.

I wish you all every success.
