College Counseling

Our school culture celebrates the diversity of individual choices and the stories they reflect.

The excellence of our educational program is evidenced by the success of our alumni. International High School students have a distinct advantage when applying to various schools, in part because colleges and universities appreciate the challenging nature and unique value of the International Baccalaureate and the French Baccalauréat. Colleges know that International students come already prepared for the upper level thinking, sophisticated writing, global mindedness, and independent research skills that lie ahead.

Applying to colleges and universities appears complicated and daunting. In part, it is, but it is also a wonderful opportunity for self-examination and thoughtful planning. By beginning the formal process in Grade 11 with preparation in Grades 9 and 10, and with advice and support from our College Counselors, the application process can be relatively smooth and free of worry.

Our students report a high rate of satisfaction with the process and with their college decisions, and our school culture celebrates the diversity of those individual choices and the stories they reflect. We are also excited by their adventurous spirit; our alumni are currently enrolled in institutions of higher education around the world and across the United States.
