College Visits @ International School

International School juniors and seniors are invited to attend visits by college and university admissions representatives on our campus during school hours in the fall.  Students may attend up to five visits with teacher approval.  Automatic notification is sent to students via Naviance when “colleges I’m thinking about” schedule visits.  All scheduled visits are available for viewing in Naviance.  Registration is required two days in advance.

If you are an admissions representative, please login or create a free account at CounselorCommunity.com.   We look forward to your visit!

College Boot Camp

College Boot Camp is a summer workshop for International School students designed to kick start the college application process.  It is highly recommended for  the rising senior class and includes the following:

  • The College Essay
    • The bulk of our time will be on brainstorming, writing and editing each student’s main and supplemental essays
    • Guidance and edit suggestions provided for each student, including follow-up edits of essays
  • One-on-one session with each student to discuss college essay(s)
  • Applications
    • Public School Applications
    • Private School Applications
    • Common Application
    • Coalition Application

This camp is presented by International School staff in the IS library.   Payment, made online through student’s account or in the office, is registration.

Class of 2021:  August 17-21, 2020.  AM session is 9am-noon; PM session is 1-4pm.  Cost is tbd.*

Special thanks to the ISPTSA for providing college application resource books for use at College Boot Camp and throughout the 2019-20 school year.
