College Counseling

We believe that thoughtful and advanced planning is essential to choosing a direction for life after ISL.

We teach and advise students to prepare well-written, carefully chosen, and thoughtful applications, and select the direction that fits their own goals and personality best.

We believe that this process should be very rewarding for students as they experience self-examination and independence as they transition into life after ISL.

College and university planning does not have to be mysterious or stressful. Here, you can find up-to-date information about ISL’s College Counseling Program. To find out more, contact our College Counselors Anne Payne and Rebekah Joslin via e-mail:
