BISCharlotte Trailblazers Look to their Future

March 08, 2017

Matthew Drake, College Counselor for the British International School of Washington, shared his expertise with parents and students this week. He gave an insight into his role and the ways in which he will support our students as they make choices for a whole life plan, not just their college career. Matthew is passionate about personalizing this journey for students and will spend time supporting them whilst they crystalize their academic passions and the type of experience they are looking for in their college years. He has a varied database of colleges and universities he has worked with previously and also interacts with college counselors who work around the globe with Nord Anglia Education, to help him meet the needs of even the most obscure areas of interest.

After individual meetings with our 10th Grade/Year 11 students they felt motivated and more knowledgeable about their choices.

In their words:

“It made me more confident about my future. I feel well informed, excited and I’m looking forward to what comes next.”

“I feel informed of possibilities like taking a gap year, and what and when is the right time to take SATs for example. I know that colleges don’t care as much about SATs scores as they do about the IB.”

The students are equally excited about the next stage of this process as they work towards shaping the Personal Statements that will form the basis of their college applications.
