An important role carried out by the High School Counseling program is to assist students to make the best choices for continued educational opportunities beyond High School, both locally and internationally.

Individual meetings are held between students and the Counselor to discuss preferences for university and college entrance. Each student's GPA, overall school performance, and personal preferences and interests are considered before advice is given.
