College Counseling

College Counseling

Personalized university guidance

The SCIS college counseling office assists students through the college admissions process. Our College Counselors work closely with faculty advisors and administrators as they help students choose appropriately challenging classes.

Students are encouraged to reflect on their own interests, talents, and goals, and to research and explore the colleges that will foster those abilities and aspirations. Advice and guidance are provided through frequent one-on-one meetings with students. Once a student’s list of schools is finalized, the focus of these meetings turns toward the applications themselves, followed by the final selection when acceptance letters are in hand. The college counseling offices use the resource Naviance, as a main online college and career organizational and guidance tool to help students with the application process.

College Counselors also serve as liaisons to college admission offices, promoting an understanding of SCIS and our students to the colleges, and sharing important information about college admission trends and procedures with our school community.

They routinely bring in a range of University Admissions Heads from around the world to on-campus events and fairs. The counselors work with the Heads of School to ensure that the SAT is available on site all six times every year and that the ACT is available twice per year.

The College application process is a collaborative effort among counselors, teachers, students, and their families.
