Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through the application process, assist you with completing and fulfilling all of your immigrant documents if applicable, and designate time to sit and speak with you one on one about all of our programs to ensure we satisfy all of your goals while here. Upon completion of our program, our staff will even provide assistance with university admissions. ILA strives to set each and every one of our students up for success through our personalized approach and commitment to student achievement!
