A PERSONALIZED PROCESS


Our community thrives on diversity; each student has their own particular interests, talents, academic needs, and personalities. With this in mind, our college counseling process is tailored to identifying the school that best fits each individual student. From the reflecting on personal goals, career aspirations, and personal preferences, to co-creating the plan for successful university admissions, our college counseling process supports students from start to finish.

Our ASP college counseling team combines decades of experience with the most up-to-date information on university admissions in the United States, the UK and Europe, and Asia. Their expertise, connections, and deep understanding of the process ensure that students have the best possible resources to support them on the path to life beyond ASP. 

 

KEY RESOURCES


 


PSAT/SAT/ACT Preparation

PSAT/SAT/SAT Subject Test/ACT preparation courses are offered by Bespoke Education in Paris and at times at ASP during the school year. Although ASP has opted to work in coordination with Bespoke, there are many other valid, reliable sources of preparation available for students. There are numerous commercial preparation services one can choose from worldwide. Many prefer to buy one of the practice books on the market which contain practice tests and strategic advice. Others opt to use an online prep format. Some students work better with individual tutors.

Students should select the form of test preparation which corresponds best to their individual needs and family resources. Regardless of the type of preparation, it is one’s level of personal commitment and serious investment in advancing which are the key factors in successful test preparation.

ASP subscribes to SHMOOP, an interactive online test prep tool for PSAT, SAT, SATII, ACT and many AP exams. See our librarian for log-in information. Free for ASP students!

College counseling at ASP focuses on each student's needs, desires, and dreams. A successful admissions process begins with self-reflection.
