American International School of Lomé provides academic support services that supplement the support provided by course instructors. The Academic Support Center’s goal is to produce successful students who are independent learners, are prepared to meet challenges and to overcome them; understand their strengths and weaknesses and have developed strategies to aid in using their strengths to overcome weaker areas. It provides encouragement and motivation for success. AISL believes that each student is unique and it works to create a plan tailored to fit each student. The services provided are driven by the individual needs of the student.
