University Counselling at LIS
Please see the link to our University Counselling Handbook (Click Here). I will be working with our grade 9-12 students to plan their future options including university and college admissions processes. I will also work with our grade 10 students in their IB Diploma course selection process beginning in late September. My focus in the first semester is our grade 11 and 12 students ensuring that they are on the right path for their university and college applications. Students and parents from any grades were welcome to speak to me about the university application process or about our IB Diploma Programme.
I will host an IB Diploma Programme/University Planning meeting for parents this fall to review the IB Diploma expectations and to help parents understand the university planning process at Léman.
We are an ACT, SAT and Cambridge test centre. Information about upcoming ACT and SAT tests can be found on the relevant website and this is posted for students on Managebac. It is imperative that students communicate directly with me as soon as possible about their intent to sit any of these external exams wtih us. Most students who apply to the United States still take the SAT. Some universities are test free universities and that information can be found here:www.fairtest.org.
Do let me know if you have questions and I am happy to support both parents and students.
