College Guidance at Saint Maur

Students at Saint Maur benefit from the advice of counselors with experience in a variety of university systems around the world.

The members of the College Admissions Guidance Counseling Team all work closely with students, especially in Grades 11-12, and interact with them in many other areas of school life. Since most are not full-time counselors and have other positions in the school, they can appreciate the strengths and talents of each student from a wide range of viewpoints.

Saint Maur is unusual in offering a scheduled class for students in Grades 11 and 12 to help them research colleges, guide them through the application process, and teach skills of preparing for university life and career preparation. This class meets for three periods per month during Semester I of Grade 11 and throughout the year in Grade 12. It is taught by Mr Scoggins, Dr Ueda, and the other College Admissions Guidance counselors listed above.

Parents are always welcome to contact any of the College Admissions Guidance Counseling Team members. They are invited to all of the College Fairs held during the year and all of the visits by college and university representatives (as listed on the school website). In addition, Parent Orientations are held each year for parents of students in Grades 10, 11, and 12. These are scheduled for national holidays, so that all parents can attend.
