The transition from the supportive secondary school environment to the more independent post-secondary options can be a daunting one. The University Counsellor provides university guidance and career counselling to students from grades 9-12. During Grade 10, students engage in a week-long job shadowing experience during which they are placed on the job with a willing sponsor. This gives them hands-on experience in a field they may be interested in pursuing as a career. Students have been placed in a wide variety of professional fields including education, medicine, engineering, advertising and marketing and many more.
The university application process across the globe varies considerably and students receive individualized assistance with this, as well as preparation and registration for required tests such as the SAT or TOEFL. ISU utilizes Naviance, a widely-recognized and multi-faceted on-line tool that helps guide students and families through the college preparation and selection process. Students and their parents can access the student portal of Naviance called Family Connection by following this link: http://connection.naviance.com/isuganda. If you do not have a login or have forgotten the details please email Matthew Buxton, University Counsellor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
ISU students have had some impressive acceptances from the top universities in the world. For a full list and description of ISU’ programs and latest IB results, refer to the ISU School Profile.
