Our college counselling team is uniquely experienced to help our students select the college or university that is right for them. As an international school we recognize the need to be able to help our graduates navigate the complexities of the college admissions process and have put together a team with experience in college admissions in the US, UK and Korea.
Our team is constantly keeping up-to-date with trends, changing requirements and building connections in the college admissions world. Serving as resources to answer any question that may come up during the application process, our college counselors are here to help each of our students succeed in their journey to higher learning.
At SSIS, our College Counsellors begin working with students at the end of Grade 8 and increasing assistance and guidance into Grade 11 and 12. We use a best fit approach with our students giving them the tools and access to make an educated decision about their future. Over the course of the year SSIS receives visits from universities world-wide. During these visits our students are able to gather information about the courses offered, admissions requirements and explore the possibilities each institution offers.
Our counsellors work with our students to ensure a “best fit” college approach. In the past our graduates have attended elite schools such as the University of Cambridge, the London School of Economics, Vassar College, the University of Hong Kong and Seoul National University to name a few.
