Each year, approximately one third of EABJM graduates decide to pursue their higher education overseas. To help them achieve their goals, EABJM offers a college counseling program that begins in earnest in the middle of the junior year (première), allowing students time to mature as they embark on this important process. The College Counselor invests a healthy measure of time educating the students and their parents as to how each individual senior (terminale) should research colleges and universities in Canada, in the UK, in the USA or in other countries.
We support our students as they embark upon the important process of self-discovery vital not only to the college search, but also to a successful transition into adult life. Our goal is to empower them with confidence and self-knowledge. The college counseling process must begin and end with the student and our objective is to help each student find the college environment that best fits his/her unique set of talents, interests and aspirations.
In this student-centered approach to the college admissions process, we expect each student to take charge and we strive to enable students to gain a sense of responsibility and autonomy. Our job is to guide, counsel, suggest and inform. But the student is ultimately responsible for all key decisions required to drive this process forward.
Students, not the College Counseling Office are responsible for signing up for all the appropriate standardized tests and meeting all application deadlines.
As well, the application process should be a unique experience that brings together students and their parents. Parents should attend the first individual meeting with the College Counselor and are urged to attend all school presentations relating to this important matter.
In this section of our website, we've included information covering all aspects of the college/university admission process—topics specific to EABJM students as well as links to a great variety of other resources. We hope that you will find this site useful and welcome your suggestions.
