ENKA provides top-level learning experiences for students; helping them to build the skills they need to carry them into the future they envision. We, too, look to the time after our students leave ENKA, forming connections which extend beyond the curriculum and classroom, understanding that universities and employers value distinct qualities in those they recruit. One of the most important such connections is our membership, and accompanying endorsements, from several international agencies – The International Baccalaureate (IB), The Council of International Schools (CIS), and The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). ENKA is also able to award The International General Certificate of Secondary Education following Cambridge’s stringent evaluation process. Authorization and accreditation through these four prestigious organizations, combined with the Turkish MEB inspections, expand the range of options and experiences available for ENKA graduates.

While each organization or agency conducts their visits and protocol in slightly different ways, the outcome of the accreditation or authorization process is the same – internationally recognized endorsements, guaranteeing that ENKA students’ daily educational experience meets or exceeds expectations set by contemporary educational experts.
