University Guidance & Destinations

The Academic Guidance team assists all students with their academic choices as they enter, progress through and then eventually leave the High School. We recognise that every young person is a unique individual and that each one has decisions of their own to make; we provide the tools and the advice to help them find their personal path.


Starting in Grade 8 with the transition into High School, this ongoing process continues in close discussion with counsellors, teachers and advisors. The outcomes of these conversations inform the course-selection process for the final two years. Every student has a personal interview with a member of the Guidance Team during this process to allow for discussion and revision. While most students will pursue the IB Diploma and/or AP courses, every student is individually guided into the most suitably challenging programme.

In coordination with the Advisory programme, students participate in a comprehensive programme of activities designed to help them explore the connection between their own interests and aptitudes, and various career options. This process forms the basis for discussions with counsellors about students’ academic pathways including High School Course Selection and university choices.

USA Universities

The university admissions process in the USA is varied and multi-faceted, and we work closely with students and their families to navigate this process. 

UK Universities

Many of each cohort of our seniors move on to continue their education at a university in the United Kingdom.

Rest of the World

Some of our students move on to universities in other parts of the world and we work hard to support them to ensure that these decisions are taken very carefully.
