High School Counseling Team

Seoul International School counseling team

Our gifted and caring counseling team has years of experience assisting students at becoming the best versions of themselves.

The SIS counseling team consists of three Social-Emotional School Counselors and one College Counselor. The team provides holistic support to all students. One of our guiding standards is encouraging a belief in the development of the whole self, including a healthy balance of mental, social/emotional, and physical well-being.

The core of our work is personal/social development. Counselors help students to develop independence and self-confidence, become self-aware, explore identity, manage feelings and behavior, develop positive attitudes about oneself and others, and manage relationships.

We also support academic development. Counselors help students become self-reflective learners, evaluate strengths and weaknesses, develop organizational, time-management, and goal-setting skills, and identify and use strategies to improve outcomes.

We encourage intercultural competence. We want students to have an international perspective, be able to bridge cultural differences, and understand, respect, and appreciate their culture while being open to different values and traditions.
These three elements are the foundation to the final focus of our work, post-secondary development. Seoul International School strives to prepare students for college and career. With a solid social-emotional, academic, and intercultural foundation–our students are positioned to thrive during and after SIS.
