University Advising

University Advisors take the time to get to know each student’s strengths, areas of growth, and recognizing potential and future ambitions. We provide students with a first-class education that prepares them for their career and life after LAS. We take pride not only in educating strong students but attracting the attention of top universities.  Every student counts at LAS!

At times, the university application process can cause stress or worry and therein lies the LAS advantage of the personal touch and collaboration with our school counselors; we provide a highly-organized, mindful and timely process along with regular "ateliers", university visits, individualized testing plans, family updates, and acceptances to the best global universities.  We offer a one hour course/atelier starting spring semester of Grade 11 until the end of first semester Grade 12. 

Students will also be given access to MaiaLearning software designed to further assist them. This platform serves as an excellent organizational tool which provides students and families with university related resources, various learning and personality assessments and important data for university decision making. 

Our program begins in grade 9. We, as university advisors, serve dorm duty, conduct group meetings, lead cultural trips and are a part of the ethos of our learning community.

We know your child(ren)! We are also fortunate to absolutely love what we do. We hope this overview serves you well. Please revisit the website over the academic year for more resources, information, and organizational documents. We wish to keep the family involved and rely on you to check-in with us regularly.
