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, consider 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 qualified international agencies – the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the Council of International Schools (CIS), and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  Authorization and accreditation through these prestigious organizations, combined with the Turkish MEB inspections, expand the range of options and experiences available for ENKA graduates.

While each organization or agency has their independent protocols, the outcome of the accreditation/authorization process is the same – internationally recognized benchmarking of standards guaranteeing that ENKA students’ educational experience meets or exceeds pedagogical practice set by educational experts.
