At Arya, we understand that students have diverse post-secondary goals and destinations. We are proud to be an international school, and aim to foster and facilitate a global perspective in the present while contemplating the future.

Therefore, we endeavour to expose our students to a host of networking and learning opportunities, including visits from admissions tutors and career explorations that allow them make informed and satisfying post-secondary decisions.

We believe that there is a “good fit” for every student, and we work with each individually to assist them make this a reality.

Through our parents and alumni network, we also help students connect to work experience in both Year 10 and Year 11.

Additionally, we regularly host university fairs with over 40 representatives from top universities.

Overall, we are constantly searching for ways to enhance our students’ and parents’ awareness of university options and each step from selecting, applying, enrolling and arriving on campus.

Students, either individually and/or in small groups, are assisted to work on tasks like university searching, writing personal statements, practising interview skills, and composing résumés. We also welcome parents to come in, and be as much a part of the process as they would like.

It is our commitment to ensure that students leaving our school are churned enough and prepared well for not only further educational opportunities but also for national and global service. And with a progressive management, we are always scaling newer heights for the school to meet not only the present but also future needs of the students of tomorrow.
