Preschool through Grade 12

College Counseling

The ISB foundation for college preparedness: 
do personal best in academic work, cultivate curiosity, be of service. 

The Office of College Counseling at ISB offers individualized support and guidance to Upper School students and their families. A capstone of the Upper School experience, from helping to devise standardized testing strategies, discussing university and college options world-wide, to advising on research methodology and application processes around the world, or providing guidance on essay and personal statement writing, we are a resource for every aspect of the college counseling process. The student’s well-being is always at the core of our practice and we are invested in the success of each student and their personal goals.
