College Counseling

To support our unique profile, The Awty International School’s College Counseling team is composed of four professionals with experience in international higher education and admissions, as well as counseling and support. Our team helps raise the profile of Awty’s high school program with university outreach initiatives. We visit universities, attend national and international conferences to stay current on admissions policies, and maintain relationships with university admission representatives. Each year, our team provides workshops on the university selection process for Awty students and families. We also provide information for students who are interested in taking university entrance exams, such as the SAT or ACT. We look forward to working with you!

Mission Statement

Within a developmentally appropriate framework, the Awty College Counseling Department educates and advises students and families about the college admission process. Counselors help students and families make academic and college-related choices that honor individual aspirations, abilities, and needs. Counselors help students build college-related competencies in the personal, academic, and college/career domains, so they can prepare thoughtfully, aspire realistically, and choose wisely. Our work with students is guided by the core college admissions values outlined by the National Association of College Admissions Counseling (NACAC).
