The AIS College & University Counseling Office (AIS CUCO) aims to challenge every AIS student to forge a purposeful and independent path for their higher education. AIS CUCO provides highly personalized, individual guidance and extensive resources to help students explore opportunities for post-secondary possibilities.
Throughout the year, the AIS college team visits universities around the world and maintains memberships in professional organizations to facilitate dialogue and remain current with international admissions practices, trends and philosophies. The program at AIS employs a full time College and Careers Counselor, a specialist who is dedicated to supporting each AIS student through careful planning, thoughtful research, bespoke applications and a reflective decision-making process.
The university process begins in earnest with the January College Night for grade 11’s. College Night is followed by individual meetings with students and their families to continue the conversation. The entire college process is designed to be a reflective process of personal growth.
AIS students and academic programs are well respected in university admissions offices throughout the world. AIS 'Griffins' are recognized as valuable contributors and well-prepared students. Over 75 universities travel every year to visit AIS and meet personally with our students.
