NIVA American imbues our students with planning, organizing, leading and delivering skills, confidence, patience, compassion, cooperation, collaboration, empathy, and to freely express their thoughts, to listen to others, and to take responsibility for themselves, their communities, and the world we share.
We build a strong foundation for entrepreneurship for our students through our Business Career Preparation courses that prepare our students to transform their career skills to businesses whenever they are ready. They learn through a variety of hands-on real life activities, such as planning, financing, creating, marketing, selling, doing accounts.
In our intentionally diverse community, our students learn to understand, respect, and appreciate the value and strength of diversity and realize that they can all self-actualize and succeed on the global stage by recognizing humanity as one deserving equality of respect, recognition, treatment, opportunity and equity.
