College Acceptances 2013

From the Office of the Head of School

1st March, 2013


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to a new Month! As per an earlier newsletter this year, I promised to update you on the wonderful university and college, offers and acceptances our seniors are receiving. We are at the “half-way” point of receiving feedback and results from the full global reach to which our students have applied to, and many of the USA universities, shall be making our students offers this month and next.

Mr. Rafael Katz, our excellent University/College Councilor has over the past year and a half, restructured many of the methodologies used in the process of student college applications, and his innovative approaches definitely bared fruit. Well done to him, and all the other members of our professional staff who support his work. Of Course, the most important congratulations should be directed at the seniors themselves.

For those parents who do not have children in grades 11 and 12, you may be interested to know that SCIS-HQ Main approaches College/University Counseling from the perspective of the students’ needs and wishes. With such a wonderful diverse student body, we are able to cater for the full range of our students’ tertiary ambitions. Be it world class Art schools (performing or visual), to renowned universities/colleges offering Business Studies, Engineering programs, through to traditional “Ivy League” institutions.

Our current listing for your interest can be found below. Please note many of our seniors, some of those listed here, and many who are not, shall be receiving their application results within the next six weeks. I shall then again, update this list, of which we as a school are very proud of.
