Guidance Counselor

What is a Guidance Counselor?

 

A guidance counselor is a resource that students have to ask questions about their future paths after graduation from high school. Guidance Counselors help students by pointing them in the right direction for their future career paths, helping them as an official school administrator to fill in application material for universities, and providing support on student career paths.

Services we DO NOT provide

 

IMPORTANT: The guidance counselor or working with the guidance counselor in no way guarantees a student’s admission to university. 

 

We assist students in their personal journey after university. However, students are expected to do their own research and work on applications and platforms independently. If students require step-by-step guidance in these processes, then they can work with a third-party associate.

 

Considering that our guidance counselor works with ALL of our students, the guidance counselor is responsible to upload documents on behalf of WorldEd. Students who require personalized assistance should look for third-party associates to help them as this is outside the scope of a Guidance Counselor’s role. 

 

Services were we can indicate a third-party associate:

 

WorldEd will indicate reputable third-party associates for the following services but students/parents will need to negotiate these services officially with each provider. They do not reflect WordlEd and are not an official part of the WorldEd team or the Guidance Counselor services. 

 

  • Translations to English of documentation for international students

  • ACT and or SAT courses on the WorldEd platform

  • Application essay coaching

  • Application interview coaching

  • Create a School Profile for partner schools

  • Work with partner school teachers to help them understand the essay writing process with training sessions or teacher mentorship
