At Modern American School’s (MAS) Counseling Department we have a comprehensive counseling program that is mindful of the developmental needs of our students. The ease of accessibility of our counselors to both students and parents allows us all to work together to insure that our students’ strengths and interests are highlighted in their university applications and ultimately granting them admission to top-tier colleges and universities across the globe that are suited to their interests and further studies.
Our counseling program is designed to assist each individual student in learning skills and setting goals to reach one's academic potential. Our counselors work with our students throughout their high school journey setting up students’ schedules while advising on electives and class prerequisites.
Individual sessions with parents and students are regularly conducted, including after school orientations to continually inform our families of their children’s academic path at various stages of their high school careers. The counselors also register students in Advance Placement (AP) courses, and help our students register and prepare for college entrance exams such as the SAT I and SAT II exams.
College applications may be overwhelming for students and that is why at MAS our counselors are hands on with the students’ application process.
Our counselors help our students with filling up the college application forms, assist in writing college essays and personal statements, making university choice lists based compatibility, and provide recommendation letters while meeting all university application deadlines.
At MAS our counselors also maintain contact with top college and university consortiums across the globe in order to ensure our school and our students are represented and informed of the latest changes and updates to the application process at various institutions. We do so by regularly scheduling college and university visits and fairs to our campus so that our students may have a better understanding and access to these schools while ensuring that colleges have an enhanced familiarity with the bright students of MAS.
