The Philosophy of Bahrain Bayan School's College counseling office is that the match between student and College/ University is our most important concern. Therefore, we assist the student in discovering Colleges/Universities that will allow him or her to attain the best education to achieve the greatest success, and to emerge from the experience as well-prepared as possible to lead a productive, constructive, and satisfying life. With thousands of colleges and universities available, we are certain that many would qualify as good matches. Our function is to guide the student and family in making the best decisions relative to applications and choice. It is fundamental to our thinking that the final decision-making role remains with the student and his or her family. We believe the more one knows about something, the better one is able to make decisions; therefore, we consider researching colleges and universities essential to finding the best match for the student. The research process requires the following elements:
Students will work jointly with their college counselor to create a vertical list of colleges that includes:
Primary attention should be given to those colleges determined to be reachable or safe.
Admission standards and competition pools vary from year to year; therefore, the last two categories may change from year to year.
Not all students are accepted by all institutions to which they apply. Students should have full knowledge of their choice of schools, including the characteristics an institution is seeking in a prospective applicant and how competitive it is for admission to those schools.
For reasons of confidentiality and privacy, The Bahrain Bayan School College Counseling Office does not, without prior permission, disclose information that could identify an individual student during the application process.
The college counseling office offers many events and activities to help students choose the right college. Hosting universities is one of their greatest events, where students get to meet representatives of the different universities, and know more about them to define their preferences regarding college as well as areas of study.
As per our school's vision, our students will be provided with the best possible academic curriculum, social education, and physical facilities to develop lifelong learners.
