HiPo® Student Program
A program that breeds
Are you an A student who wants to take your college application to the next level? Are you a natural leader? Do you have dreams to change the world?
The High-Potential (HiPo®) Student Program is a one-of-a-kind acceleration program that empowers students to unlock their full leadership potential through various opportunities in career development.
The first online internship
for high school students
When it comes to internships for high school students in the region, we found that we fall quite short of the international standard. This is why we’ve created the HiPo Program – to give students a chance to work remotely with us at IVA, a growing edtech startup, to gain valuable experience and practical knowledge on entrepreneurship in the tech sector.
Student are encouraged to select their own roles – from marketing and business development to financial analysis and web development.
What will you get out of it?
free access to all study tools
That’s right. As a HiPo, you are entitled to free and unlimited access to all courses, practice tests, learning documents, and more. We want to ensure your academic excellence and help you get into your dream school!
free career assessment report
You will receive a comprehensive career assessment report that recommends college majors and job occupations based on your personality, interests, work style, and ambitions – followed by a walkthrough with your mentor.

HiPos get priority access to all of our workshops – both virtual and in-person. For those living in Kuwait, we have partnered up with Toastmasters International to give you the Youth Leadership Program at our training center.
