The importance of college placement counselling in not really well understood in India; HIXS stands apart in this area and has an excellent track record. College counselling at HIXS has only one goal: enabling students to achieve their potential. It believes that a student should transition from school into a college/university where there will be continuation of the learning she has so far acquired in school and a logical extension of her growth – academic and personal development.
HIXS provides a safe, non-judgmental space for the student to come in with questions and doubts about the what, where and how of the college application process during, arguably, one of the most stressful periods of her/his life. We work with students and their families by identifying the student’s interest areas, learning style, courses of interest, geographical inclinations, grades, professorship and financial ability to find the right fit universities. The aim is to build student and parent knowledge through extensive group interactions, workshops and one-on-one sessions for the senior programme students. We strive to ensure not merely that our students secure admissions at elite institutions of higher learning but they thrive through their undergrad experience and beyond. We also invite our alumni students and families to connect with our current students and share their experiences to build a community of learners.
HIXS has invested in and incubated one of the most successful college placement cells in the country. The cell has strategically established relationships with admissions offices of top global and Indian colleges/universities and enabled our students to have access to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in both India and abroad.
Through extensive research on universities, geographies, programmes, courses, professors and the interest of our students, we invite highly rated, elite universities to see our campus to understand our school’s philosophy, speak to our parents and students. We continuously apprise our students of college and university visits in the NCR area and encourage them to visit such gatherings and meets.
HIXS has a four-year counselling programme that entails a customised plan for each student based on skills, aptitudes, personality and aspirations. The programme works closely with parents through one-on-one sessions, orientations and workshops with an aim to build the mindset of strategic portfolio and CV building early on. Through the crucial Grades 9 to 12, our counsellors advise students to pursue the following course of action:
