In most cases, life beyond Stamford American means further education at a college or university in the U.S. or anywhere in the world. In order to prepare our students, we have taken the stance of carrying out pre-university testing from Grade 8 onwards.
This early introduction allows our academic teams to provide Stamford students with ample tailored support, ensuring a smooth transition to the tertiary institution of their choice. This takes place via personalized support programs and close ongoing involvement with parents and guardians, providing every opportunity for future success driven by students’ own aspirations.
The College and Careers Counseling Team – conversant with the needs of universities around the world – meets with students as a group once a week to discuss topics related to academic and university preparation. The team monitors achievements and progress, and works with all concerned to ensure continuous improvement. It also introduces guest experts who speak and advise on relevant aspects of preparedness for ongoing education.
Stamford American students considering a university education in the U.S. are also privileged to have easy access to the very best information and advice with the U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA. Access the most authoritative resources, find relevant up-to-date information and receive counselling on any of the 4,500 accredited universities and colleges in the U.S.
