University Advising

It takes a family! The university advising process at Leysin American School is personal, dedicated, supportive, and stays true to our Faculty Family philosophy. We strive to find the absolute best fit college or university for each and every student, wherever it is in the world they want to go. 

We take the time to get to know each student’s strengths, areas of growth, and potential and future ambitions. LAS provides students with a first-class education that prepares them for their future. We take pride not only in educating strong students but attracting the attention of strong universities. At times, the university application process can cause stress or worry and therein lies the LAS advantage of the personal touch; we provide a highly-organized and timely process along with regular meetings, university visits, individualized testing plans, and acceptances to global universities.

Students will also be given access to software designed to further assist them in planning for their futures. This software serves as an excellent organizational tool which provides students with search engines and important data for college decision making. 

Our program begins in grade 9. We, as university advisors, serve dorm duty, conduct group meetings, and work collaboratively with our colleagues: deans, associate deans, counselors, learning specialists, and coaches. We know your child(ren)! We are also fortunate to absolutely love what we do. We hope this portal serves you well. Please look out over the next coming weeks for more resources, information, and organizational documents. We wish to keep the family involved and rely on you to check the portal frequently.
