The Counselling Department has curated a Career Aptitude Program to cater to students of class preparing for opportunities after school. The Department builds a personality profile and a holistic report for each student individually which is later shared and discussed with the parents. The report includes components such as strengths, weaknesses, personality type, and best suited career paths for the student.
Based on this, we can work with students on their plans for college and help them decide the perfect fit for them.
