College Counseling

The small counselor-to-student ratio at British International allows for a highly individualized boutique approach to college counseling. Our college counselors draw upon their individual expertise to collaborate - creating a team approach when working with students and families. We empower students with the tools and life skills necessary to have ownership of the college admissions process. The goal is to guide and support students in exploring a broad range of best fit post-secondary options both in the United States and abroad that align with their skills, strengths and interests. While this can be a stressful time, we prioritize confidence building and encourage self-efficacy and open-mindedness throughout the process.
