The CIS Guidance Department is tasked with helping students find their passion in life and give them the tools with which to achieve their goals. Students need support from faculty, home, peers, and their wider community in order to grow into their best selves. We aim to coordinate these resources in order to nurture young scholars into confident and competent adults, ready to encounter an ever-changing world.
Our support includes assisting students in identifying their interests and strengths, university planning with students and their families, helping all students find academic success, planning for standardized testing, and much more. I understand that navigating the university planning process can be intimidating for many parents. We break the process down into several stages to help both students and parents understand each element thoroughly:
Grade Eleven and Twelve students have the opportunity to join university visits. University representatives from all over the world give presentations to our students (either in person or virtually). This gives students the opportunity to learn more details about each university and ask good questions!
Previous to working at CIS, I worked in university admissions for some of the top US universities. I know that universities are looking for students who are ready to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Through our seminars, parent meetings, student sessions, and visits with university representatives, students have many opportunities to grow and learn. We are proud to help in the development of tomorrow’s leaders!
