Year 13 University Guidance Course 



The year 13 University Guidance Course will focus on applications until Winter Break. During this time we will focus attention on completing: The Naviance Resume (Teacher Recommendations), Essay & Personal Statement Writing, Online Applications, and University Testing that will lead us to successful sending of our applications before the due date.

The second half of the year January – June we will have sessions devoted to the international school counseling model in the domains of: Academic, Social, Personal, and Global Perspectives. These will be thematic sessions with one topic presented each time. Student interests will help determine the best use of these sessions.
