College counseling

St. Stephen's offers specialized career and university counseling services that prepare students for the future and aid in their college or university search process. Our international student body applies to multiple education systems and matriculates to universities throughout the world whose admissions requirements vary widely. We work with students to highlight their individuality and their passions, provide strategic guidance throughout the application process, increase college admissions competitiveness, and help students make informed decisions about their college choices.


Preparing for the next stage of life should be exciting. In order to make this a seamless process, students and families are encouraged to become involved early on so that their academic planning is sound. This involves completing on-line surveys, managing timelines and deadlines for making decisions about universities and careers, researching colleges to include comparing Grade Point Average (GPA), standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from our school for students who have applied and been admitted in the past, and lastly, signing up to attend on-campus visits from universities from around the world.

University Counseling by Grade

College preparation for freshmen includes a strong academic performance that is based on good study habits and skills.  It is important to note that when applying to universities in the United States, a student’s academic performance in the 9th grade is also considered when his or her transcript is being reviewed. In addition to a strong academic performance, students are also greatly encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and service-learning programs.
