College Counseling

College Counseling Program


"As a community, we empower each student to embrace opportunities, pursue passions and contribute thoughtfully to the world."   

This looks different for every student! College Counseling is meant to help support students in continuing to develop their vision, ambitions, and passions once they graduate from ISL. A well-thought out college counseling program allows students to identify universities that fit their needs and aid them in the next steps of their journey. 

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 via e-mail: apayne@isl.edu.lv

Anne Payne, College Counselor

As a college counselor, I seek to...

* 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.

* empower students to incorporate a routing of self-examination and reflection in their lives as they gain independence and transition into life after ISL.

* demystify the distinguishing characteristics of university systems around the world and support students from the initial identification of universities all the way to choosing their future home.

While some resources are still a work in progress, this website offers valuable resources for members of our community seeking to learn more about best-fit systems worldwide. My door is always open! If you have any questions about how to support your student, please don't hesitate to get in touch at apayne@isl.edu.lv.
