University and Career Counseling

Preparation for career and university starts in High School. Grade 10 students take a  comprehensive career assessment (Morrisby Assessment), and they are advised by the Middle School/High School Counselor, the IBDP Coordinator, and their teachers  in choosing the appropriate IB DP program subjects for Grades 11 and 12. 

The University/Career Advisor meets with all students and on occasion, parents, to advise and guide them through the university application process (or other post-secondary opportunities). Meetings generally begin to take place from Grade 11 onwards. University information is presented in a group format during formal presentations, and university representative visits and different points in the school year, depending on the grade level. 

The services provided include:

  • Grade 10 IB program information and course selection (with the IBDP Coordinator)

  • Information sessions (parents/students) concerning international university admissions processes

  • Administration of the Morrisby Assessment

  • University exploration

  • Consulting with students on “best fit” 

  • Coordinating virtual and in-person university admission representative visits to AISL

  • Feedback on application essay, personal statement, etc. 

  • Guidance on obtaining letters of recommendation

  • Individual student meetings to discuss the application process

  • Individual and small-group  student meetings throughout the exploration and application process

  • Document requests for university applications

  • Guidance on standardized test requirements

  • Transition to university activities and information

  • Assistance with GAP year decisions
