Student Support


College Counseling

CIS has an extensive College Counseling Program, which helps and guides students while looking into their needs and abilities, and ultimately into the right career path. Our College Counseling office works with students as early as Grades 9 & 10 to prepare for their college and university choices. Our College Counselor partners with students and provides a 1-on-1 support to guide students through the process of determining interests, educational career goals, family decisions, and then helps students to navigate through the university admissions process.

CIS invested in the Cialfo platform, which is a wonderful resource for students, giving them easy access to information, to discover the right college for them.

Over the years CIS graduates have been accepted at prestigious colleges in many countries, and in some cases, as a result of being IB students, have been awarded valuable scholarships to help with their studies.

College Visits

Many representatives from universities around the world visit CIS throughout the school year and direct university consultations are regularly offered to students to guide them through this major life decision processes. Students and parents are welcome to attend these university visits throughout the school year.
