College Acceptances & Guidance

Welcome to the College Guidance Program of the International School in Genoa!

"The truth is, your success in life will be determined by who you are and your willingness to take risks, alongside the qualities of resilience, of creativity, and of your capacity to collaborate with others to achieve a goal. 

Your ability to make a friend laugh, comfort someone in distress, resolve a confrontation, or your determination to stick to your principles when they are being challenged.”

 

Mr. David Monk

ISG School Director

Graduation Ceremony  2021



 

COLLEGE COUNSELING AT ISG

The College Guidance program for the students of The International School in Genoa helps them prepare for the next stage of their academic careers; research courses and majors, colleges and universities; and work through the application process.

Applying to university can be a very lengthy and involved process; this is especially true for international students.  Students and their families should not underestimate the time required and never run the risk of not meeting university application deadlines: start planning early!  Even though it will be hard work and require a great deal of organization and initiative on your part, however, it can also be a time of great self-discovery and excitement.  We encourage each of you to find the “right fit” – the perfect university to help you achieve your dreams!

The International School in Genoa’s academic programs are rigorous, university-preparation programs and we expect that the vast majority of our high school students will apply for post-secondary education in a college or university.  The IB Diploma Programme that you are studying will allow you to apply to excellent universities throughout the world, as noted in an article from February 2013 in The Independent, The IB develops the students top universities want .

Our common objective is for students to gain offers from the universities that best suit their future academic and personal aspirations, e.g. the “best university for the student.”

For more information please contact the school’s College Counselor, Elizabeth Rosser Boiardi

 

UNIVERSITY OPPORTUNITIES

All our students are candidates for the ISG high school diploma. In addition, ISG offers all students the possibility of also preparing for the full IB diploma programme. 

 

ISG COLLEGE FAIR AND WORKSHOPS

ISG is proud of offering one of the most interesting and international College Fairs in Italy. This is a great opportunity for our students to meet in person the officers from the most prestigious colleges around the world and to explore from the early years of their High school, which path they might be interested in. We also invite university representatives of some important and key universities to offer students dedicated workshops. New York University, the University of British Columbia, and King’s College London are among the universities that we have hosted. Students are also able to participate in a wide variety of online university workshops and visits.

IB RESULTS AT ISG

Since 2004, 169 ISG students (97.6 % of our candidates) have obtained the IB Diploma. We are really proud of our students and their achievements. The IB Diploma Programme gave them access to universities and colleges in three continents, in more than 10 different countries. Our students have followed degree courses in fields as varied as Medicine, Engineering, Economics, Law, International Relations / Politics, Hospitality Management, Business Studies, Psychology, Communications, Fashion, Mathematics, and Literature, just to mention a few.

The International School in Genoa congratulates all our students for their many excellent results!  We are particularly proud of how they have faced the challenges of the past years with great tenacity, flexibility, and positivity.
