College Counseling

College Counseling

At AAS, we give each student the knowledge and tools necessary to find a post-secondary option that is right for him or her. Through a process of self-exploration and discovery in advisory, as well as in academic classes and extra-curricular activities, students learn about their strengths and interests.

Although the process of preparing for higher education begins in grade 9 and continues throughout high school, over the course of grade 11 students will begin to apply what they know about themselves to their university research in order to find the school that fits their individual needs.

The official search begins in December of grade 11 when parents are asked to fill out the Parent Questionnaire. Then in January, all grade 11 students will begin having formal appointments with their assigned counselor.

Responsibilities for Success

During the university application process, students, counselors, and parents all have their own set of responsibilities that will help to create a successful enrollment outcome.

No matter where in the world our students would like to study, the counselors are here to help guide them through the admissions maze. Students are welcome to meet with us as many times as they would like, and parents can always join in on those meetings or come on their own. We are here as a resource—please take advantage!
