COOK Education Center Enrolls Its First Foreign Student

November 5th, 2009 by admin

The Institute for Effective Education (TIEE) has recently obtained I-17 status enabling it to enroll foreign students in its COOK Education Center. After a comprehensive review by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Immigration and Naturalization, TIEE was given the ability to grant foreign student status (I-20) to eligible students. The status has recently been granted to a Pakistani adolescent, who has been enrolled in COOK Education Center’s Secondary Program following an extensive assessment of the school’s ability to educate the student in keeping with his family’s wishes.

Dr. Suzanne Fitch, Ed.D., TIEE’s Executive Director of Programs and Personnel, and administrator responsible for issuing the status of eligibility, commented that “many of the world’s countries do not have the level of expertise in educational programming that is central to TIEE’s schools, so we take this opportunity to assist foreign families who wish to have their children educated in our schools. We open our doors to interested families in the belief that our schools provide the highest quality education appropriate to the needs of their children and their enrollment will add immeasurably to the multiculturalism already a valued aspect of our schools.”
