Superior College Counseling Services!
Oct 23, 2019
As a College Preparatory school, we pride ourselves on educating students that colleges and universities around the world are thrilled to welcome onto their campuses. For more than 30 years, our alum has left The International School to study everything from Arts & Humanities, Mathematics & Science to Zoology, and we could not be prouder of everything they continue to achieve and the contribution they make in communities throughout the world.
Navigating the transition from High School to the right college can be difficult. There are so many things to consider and this can be overwhelming and incredibly stressful for students and their families and guardians. After conducting a series of Town Hall meetings where Nadia Reda and Gail Asche enjoyed an open and candid dialogue with many families we decided to make a significant and immediate change to our College Preparation Programs for students beginning in 9th Grade.
Effective immediately, The International School has retained College Connectors (www.collegeconnectors.com) to develop and manage a robust and complete suite of services for students and parents at the various stages of identifying and finding the right next-step. Our students in grades 9 through 12 will enjoy the benefits of superior advice and guidance from experienced professionals, adept and guiding families to the right decision for them.
Laurie McGregor will continue to be available in her current capacity until Thursday, 7 November 2019, to maintain continuity and ensure a smooth transition to Kate Malczewski and Julie Ekkers who will jointly assume responsibility for the day-to-day management of our relationship.
Kate Malczewski, Owner of College Connectors said, “College Connectors is excited to partner with The International School to provide college counseling services to [their] students and families. Our passion for working with students, our knowledge of college admissions, and our structured processes will help students navigate the college admissions process with ease” adding “The college search process should be informative, enlightening and fun – not stressful!”
Nadia Reda, School Director stated that the decision to move ahead with College Connectors comes at a critical time for many families and added that she was eager to see the results of this collaboration.
