College Counselling

At SSIS, our College Counsellors begin working with students in Grade 9 and increase their assistance and guidance into Grades 11 and 12. We use a “best fit” approach with our students giving them the skills, providing the knowledge, and enabling a deeper awareness to help them make well-informed decisions about their futures. Over the course of the year, SSIS receives many visits from universities and colleges world-wide. During these visits, our students and families are able to gather information about the courses offered, ask questions, and explore the possibilities each institution may offer.

Our Counsellors

Our College Counselling team is uniquely experienced to help our students make informed choices about their courses and pathways that compliment their strengths and future goals.

Visiting College Reps

Throughout the school year, we welcome the opportunity to host post-secondary institution visits from around the world.

University Matriculation

Beginning with our first graduates in 2005, SSIS students have been accepted into 375 universities and colleges in 21 countries across the globe.

Without the SSIS College Counselling Program, I believe I would have faced lots of difficulties during my application process and even made wrong decisions for universities.
