The College Preparatory Program (CPP) is a one-year college prep program designed to prepare selected Saudi high school graduates for admission to and success at competitive universities worldwide.
On successful completion of the CPP, students will be sponsored for a college degree at an out-of-Kingdom university under the Company’s “College Degree Program for Non-Employees” (CDPNE). The CDPNE program is a highly-selective scholarship program for Saudi male and female high school graduates. The program is one of the Company's primary sources of degreed Saudi professional and technical manpower.
The CPP is committed to academic excellence achieved in a challenging yet cooperative and friendly environment. The program offers courses in English, math, business studies, science and technology as well as in those areas critical to a student’s future success at university. We pay particular attention to key skills such as academic research, study habits, time management, culture and critical thinking.
However, the CPP is not just about academics. The program offers extensive sports and co-curricular programs involving a wide range of activities such as football, basketball, volleyball, public speaking, clubs and community service. Students are encouraged to participate fully in all aspects of the program.
The learning/teaching activities and materials employed at the CPP are designed to prepare Saudi students for study at universities all over the world. The medium of instruction is English. Students sit for a number of external examinations, which include the AP (Advanced Placement) exams, iBT TOEFL (Internet-Based Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), SAT-I (Scholastic Aptitude Test I) and SAT-II (Scholastic Aptitude Test II). The program has a proud record of achievement in international exams.
The CPP faculty is made up of many different nationalities, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Jordan, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and the Philippines. Students are exposed to a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and teaching styles.
The CPP invites all ambitious, hard working high school students to apply for the program and work with Saudi Aramco to develop their talents and capabilities for the benefit of Saudi Aramco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
