Advisors

Every student is assigned a faculty advisor whose role is to provide support in academics, Triveni and residential living. Your advisor will ensure that you are on track in all these areas and address any questions or concerns that might arise in your time at the college. You will also be part of an advisor group of nine or ten students that meets each week to discuss important issues or happenings at the college. Your advisor will be the first point of contact for parents/guardians. 

Wada Parents

University Guidance

There is a University / College counselor who will guide you through the process of selecting and applying for places and scholarships at universities and colleges anywhere in the world. We have many recruiters from top universities coming to the school and it is your responsibility to be aware of these presentations and to attend them, ask questions and to reflect carefully about your university choices and scholarship applications.

You can apply to up to ten universities around the world. We also highly encourage you to take Gap Years.

Learning Support

The IB is a demanding academic programme and it takes most students some time to adjust to this new method of teaching and learning. In order to support students academically, the college has a Learning Support Office where they can go for help with skills such as essay writing, time management or study techniques. The Learning Support coordinator works with faculty and advisors to identify students in need of academic support, and students are also encouraged to monitor their own progress and to seek support when they need it.

Students with learning difficulties or other special education needs are encouraged to indicate these needs in their joining papers and to contact the Learning Support coordinator upon arrival at the college. The Learning Support coordinator may also encourage students facing particular difficulties with the academic programme to be assessed for specific learning difficulties, as identification of a such difficulties can help the faculty to better support the student. At times, the IB provides special allowances for exams, such as extra time or access to a word processor, to students with identified specific learning difficulties.

Peer Tutoring

In addition to learning support, we have a Language and Writing Centre in which teachers and peer tutors will be available to support other students with language acquisition and writing in English, French, Hindi and Spanish.
