College Counseling Mission, Beliefs & Commitments
As advocates for our students’ finding their best fit, we work in partnership with our community to affirm and support TASIS England’s mission, commitments and outcomes toward life-long learning. In doing so, we strive to embolden students to make choices that positively enhance their own well-being and that of others, now and for the future.
All students, with support and counseling, can take ownership of the post-secondary research to find the right fit and destination upon graduation from TASIS England based on their wants, needs, and abilities.
Students are able to speak openly and candidly with their counselor, understanding our work together is confidential.
Students are heard, acknowledged, and understood.
For College Counselors
A four-year college counseling program challenges students to explore options while also providing the skill set to complete and understand the post-secondary process.
An international college counseling program highlights the multitude of options available to students in different countries and contexts.
College Counselors work as a team to support one another and their students in the delivery of content and individual counseling across Grades 9-12.
The College Counselors, students, and families work collaboratively to support the post-secondary research and application process, preparing the student for their individual journey.
We believe that this process is about self-discovery and growth, and we are excited to work with each student as they navigate their way along this momentous journey. Our guiding principle is much like that of a good teacher: meet the student where they are. The TASIS England post-secondary journey is guided by our commitment to:
- We know that each student has a different path and abilities. We do not expect students to follow the same course.
- Some students will engage with our team from the first day of freshman year and seek input on a regular basis. A few may find they are not ready for the college process at all and choose an alternate post-secondary option such as a gap year or volunteer experience. We will be here when they are ready.
The College Counseling Office at TASIS England builds its program around the individual. We believe that the post-secondary process begins and ends with the student.
The College Counselors will provide students with tools and skills to reflect their beliefs and talents and help them choose the path that suits them best.
