The International School Nido de Aguilas

University Placement

Nido’s University & College Counseling Program provides students and parents with a holistic framework for university and college admissions. Nido students learn about and are admitted to outstanding colleges and universities around the world. Nido University Counselors work with our students to ensure that they are looking for schools that are a good fit for them across many dimensions – academic, social, geographic, professional, and personal.

Students complete the comprehensive university selection and application process with the support of their University Counselors in a regularly scheduled class during the school day or as a club after school. Students research and refine their university list in a way that aligns with their interests, academic profile, abilities and family plan. In Nido’s University Counseling program, students write authentic and memorable application essays, develop unique application themes, and make a personal plan of action related to specific university and career goals.  Students may also prepare for interviews, craft professional communications with admissions staff, apply for financial aid or scholarships, and submit complete applications. 

A variety of inventory tests on career aptitude, personality, and learning styles are given to students throughout their high school years to facilitate individualized planning. Our Counselors keep students informed about summer enrichment opportunities and can assist with finding internships here in Santiago or across the globe. University Counselors also arrange on-site visits from admissions representatives from universities and colleges from around the world.
