A.I.S.S. Opening Doors

Acheivement Institute of Scientific Studies

I met Paul Riordan many years ago. Paul is a retired educator.  Throughout his long career as a teacher he went the extra mile for his students, and when he retired he had a plan in mind to continue his efforts to enable poor but brilliant young students to pursue a scientific college or university education.

It was Pauls good fortune to teach at in areas where families were often very poor.  Most of the parents could not afford to send their children off to school after high school - regardless of how smart and talented they were.  Paul knew how to help students deal with this roadblock.

He founded A.I.S.S. as a 501 c (3) foundation for the purpose of assisting poor but smart academic scholars in furthering their academic careers in science and mathematics. A.I.S.S. provides no scholarships. The focus is on gaining admission and ongoing support from the finest advanced school for their particular area of studies.

A.I.S.S.  Provides:

*  Educational seminars on scientific disiplines.
*  Expert counseling on higher education requirements.
*  Guest speakers from scientific industries.
*  Guidance and advice when applying to a college or university.
*   Monetary assistance for application fees,
*   SAT & ACT testing,
*   Multiple Score Reporting,
*   Advanced Placement Exams,
*   Tutors to boost grades,
*   Copying and mailing fees,
*   College counselling fees, and so forth

The costs listed above can be as little as $150 or as much as $8,000 depending on the educational plan and the schools selected.

A.I.S.S. was started in 2001 and since then has assisted over 300 students gain admission to the finest institutions of higher learning in America. There are currently A.I.S.S. students attending Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, University of California at Berkeley, UCLA, USC and many other fine schools.

I am an advisor to the President of A.I.S.S.  If you are interested in learning more about this fine organization, please contact me.
