Welcome to Senior School University Guidance and Careers

The University Guidance Center works as an integral part of the Senior School, alongside the Senior School House and MYP/DP programmes to prepare our students to fully engage in lifelong success. One tool is the Senior School Gateway curriculum, a series of life and college preparation seminars which are required for Grades 9 through 12. These courses aim to develop skills, self awareness and preparation for the application and transition to university. Our goal is to empower students to take the lead in the university application process. A group of experienced college counselors with global expertise, Senior School House Heads and Senior School Tutors support the student-centered university search and application process. On-going parent workshops, extensive resources and meetings are available to every family throughout the four-year Senior School journey. The UGC process informs and supports families through the transition to university, serving as a bridge to postgraduate opportunities. Our end goal is for each Grade 12 student to have quality university choices including an excellent match. 100% matriculation for the class is our standard.



UGC Naviance Update:

Recently, we in the UGC were informed that Hobson's online platform for international schools for university and college applications, Naviance, will cease to operate from June 2018. This was a complete surprise to us and to all international schools including those of us here in Hong Kong. Hobson’s reason for this decision relates to a need to better serve their domestic market (US & Canada).

We would like to reassure all parents and students that all current applications for the Class of 2018 are secure and it is business as usual. Nothing will change for students and families. The change will affect students in Grades 8, 9,10 and 11. At the moment, we are working with the International Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC) , IT consultants and our ISF experts to find a suitable replacement for our University Careers and Guidance (UGC) needs. Rest assured that we will find the best platform to protect the data we already have on Naviance and investigate an online system​ designed to serve our future needs.

We will keep you updated regularly once we know more.

Felicity​ Donnoli, Assistant Principal (Senior School)
