College Advising

Welcome to College Advising

Given the global nature of educational opportunities available to GISNY students who earn the German International Abitur (DIA), our approach to college advising is highly individualized. 

To help our students find their own paths and gain acceptance to their favorite schools, our savvy college advisors work very closely with students and their families to guide them through the selection and application process for schools in the US, Canada, Great Britain and European countries.  

Each year, our college advisors also offer students a variety of opportunities to explore possible educational and career paths with events such as career panels, college alumni Q&A sessions and interview training.  Furthermore, it is recommended that our upper grade students  complete 80 hours of community service prior to graduation.

On average, 80% of GISNY graduates continue their education at colleges and universities in German-speaking countries.  However, a growing number of our students choose to attend university in English-speaking countries including the United States, Canada, Great Britain and other European countries.  Below is a list of the colleges and universities to which our graduates have been accepted in recent years.
