High School Counseling

The THSI high school guidance and college counseling program at THIS offers valuable assistance focused on students’ academic and emotional growth. This focused curriculum is delivered from grades 9-12 and addresses skills necessary for success at THSI and life beyond THSI. Our guidance counselors are highly skilled and experienced with assisting Chinese students and families through the college admission process. They are also knowledgeable about the skills, dispositions, and character students need to succeed in highly-selective universities. These qualities are more than just academic achievement. Our guidance team works closely with faculty and students to ensure our program provides opportunities to develop all skill sets including those that result in personal well-being. 

To accomplish these goals, our guidance counselors assist with course selection and choosing learning experiences that match our students’ future goals and aspirations. In addition to course selection, our guidance counselors also provide well-informed direction regarding the development of student interests beyond our traditional academic coursework. Sustained dedication to these learning experiences often demonstrates the true passions and interests of students beyond the well-worn path of coursework and standardized tests. We give attention to this because, increasingly, a proactive approach to developing one’s interests is a quality that leads to success and fulfillment in our rapidly-changing world. 

The counseling office works with students, parents, and teachers to develop a middle and high school program for students that best suits their individual interests and ambitions for college abroad. 

Our guidance and college counsellors also provide direct assistance with all aspects of the college application process. This assistance involves support for students and families with: researching prospective universities, developing a university list, planning visits from university recruiters, registering for AP tests, and details involved with university applications. We make it a point to get to know each student personally and are very dedicated to preparing each student for success here at THSI and at universities that are a right fit for each student. We are committed to helping students find the university environment where each student can thrive. This environment is different for each student and does not always follow the opinions of the authors of the latest top-20 list.
