University and College Counseling

Graduates from our school earn the experience and knowledge that make them ideal candidates for universities. Our students not only gain admittance to top schools all over the globe but are setup to succeed at a high level at those institutions.

College Counseling

In addition to preparing our students minds for higher education we also provide university and college counseling.

Our counselors assist students in navigating the university and college application process. We help them search for and identify schools that are a good fit for their current needs and future goals.

Leveraging programs such as BridgeU, we also help students layout their application road map, helping organize what can otherwise be a very messy process of applying to multiple universities across the globe.

Our counselors help students build stand out portfolios and applications, allowing their unique qualities to shine and capture the attention of college admissions officers.

We now host at least one college and university visit to A-JIS per month from schools around the world. Annually, representatives from top schools in Europe, Canada, the USA, Japan, Australia, and other Asian post-secondary schools visited us to present their study options to our high school students. Our students are also required to attend regional post-secondary education fairs to meet with university representatives first hand, and to collect information about institutions from around the world that interest them.
