LAS provides students with a first-class education that prepares them for their future beyond high school.
With our world recognized IB Program located on the Belle Époque campus, LAS attracts outstanding students. Our strong focus on academic excellence, along with our mission to develop innovative, compassionate and responsible global citizens, significantly enhances student commitment, student outcomes and college admissions.
Points of Pride
LAS is attracting not only strong students but also the attention of strong universities. More than 50 college representatives journey here to interview our students. In addition, LAS students may attend college fairs, during which they can visit with representatives from numerous universities worldwide, and open houses at universities.
Students who wish to apply to American colleges/universities may need to take the SAT or the ACT. Each year, StudyWorks assists juniors in optimizing their test scores. The results are well worth the effort on the part of students and the investment by parents.

- 42% US

Each student, on average, applies to about eight universities.

The LAS college counseling program in grade 10 works with FutureWise, an organization that helps prepare students for opportunities through professional career guidance and information about higher education. Students receive one-to-one guidance interviews and access to career information and paths, as well as updates on college and university options. The program opens their eyes to career and university opportunities and how to get to where they want to go.
Grades 11 & 12
Students are introduced to Naviance, a software program designed to research options for college studies. Parents may also have access to this program, providing them with opportunities to advise their children and be directly involved with university selection.
Students are guided through the sometimes confusing college application process. Students meet regularly in individual appointments with their college counselors.
