Whether a student is planning to go to university, a gap year, military service or pursue other options, the Upper School University and Career Counselors provide personalized assistance in that transition.

We guide students in their quest to find the pathway that best fits their abilities, interests and needs. ZIS graduates are highly regarded, and each year more than 100 university representatives from a variety of countries visit our Upper School to meet with students and their counselors.

Our counselors are experienced and have the most up-to-date information on trends in the admissions world, and how changes specifically affect ZIS students. So, whether a student is planning for university, a gap year, or military service, our counselors offer individualized academic planning and help with university applications.
