University Counseling

Our vision is to inspire individuals so we can help make the world a better place by supporting students to be successful in KIS and prepared for university and beyond. In order to nurture passion in our students, we understand both students and parents need support when confronting the daunting task of university applications and selection.

 

The counseling team hosts regular events, teaches classes for students, coordinates university representative visits, sources helpful software, acts as a sounding board, and plans activities throughout the year to help students and parents:

 

  • Coffee with Counselors is a monthly meeting for parents to hear from counselors and other parents regarding information related to supporting secondary school students. Depending on the time of the year there will be more specific university-related topics discussed such as PSATs, SATs, scholarships, or application requirements, etc. Other times information will be more related to supporting students socially/emotionally.
     
  • Maia Learning is software available to our students and parents to support the university research and application process. Using the Maia College Search function helps students find best fit universities based on location, programs of study, cost of attendance, application requirements, and scholarships available. We begin working with Maia with students in grades 9 and 10, utilizing some of their online assessments, and then in grades 11 and 12 we delve deeper into the university research.
     
  • Regular University Visits and University Fairs are hosted at KIS throughout the academic school year. Representatives speak with our students and answer questions about admissions, programs on offer, scholarships available, and campus life.
     
  • Bi-weekly lessons with each grade level cover topics such as university research, finding the right fit university, academic planning, standardized testing, discovering personal interests, importance of co-curricular activities, building a resume, university application processes around the world, career exploration, conducting university visits, summer programs, decision-making, goal-setting, and strengthening leadership skills.
     
  • Counselors foster relationships with various university representatives around the world to stay up to date with current admissions requirements and trends, make important professional connections, and have firsthand experience to pass on to students interested in various countries and institutions.
     
  • Provide an open-door policy for students to speak with their counselor when they are needing social/emotional support, academic guidance, or engage in their future planning.
