“Learning English is the first step towards your goal.”

We at Approach are here to be your home away from home, and to welcome you to the beautiful city of Boston and the region of New England. Our mission statement reflects what we want students to experience while attending classes at Approach:

To provide high-quality:  We not only strive to hire highly qualified and experienced teachers but we also invest the time and money to often update the curriculum, materials, and training our teachers. That way, we can ensure we are offering high-quality education and the best available resources to our students.  

To have flexibility: We offer a variety of programs and course schedule options. We pride ourselves on offering such flexibility while ensuring students achieve the expected academic outcome and beyond.

To have an affordable education: Great education should be accessible. For the most part, our students have dreams bigger than their bank accounts so whenever possible, we cut unnecessary costs and reformulate processes to ensure that our student’s money is being spent on what matters most: their education. 

Program of study

Our programs are designed to help you achieve your academic and professional goals in the US. The school is open for classes Monday-Saturday and there are many schedule options available.

University and Career counseling

When you first join classes at APPROACH, you will be interviewed by our Academic and Career Counselor to help you plan and decide on deadlines to successfully achieve your academic goals. Some of the reasons a student may stop by to visit with their counselor are to ask questions about joining one of our partner universities, inquire about scholarships for international students, ask questions about school policies and procedures, discuss academic and career goals, clarify a student's academic status and the requirements to be in good academic standing, discuss possibilities of applying for H1B sponsored jobs or inquire about transferring credits to prospective universities.
