President Barak Obama states it best:
“Our Higher Education system is one of the things that makes America Exceptional. There is no place else that has the assets we do when it comes to higher education. People from all over the world aspire to come and study here and that is a good thing“.
We have approximately 4000 institutions in the United States ranging from small liberal arts, to the Ivy Leagues and our state schools. World Student Support will assists families in finding the best schools suitable to each student.
Preparing for university is one of the first important and difficult decisions facing students as they enter adulthood. World Student Support maximizes a student’s successful matriculation by taking the time to get to know each student as an individual by considering cultural, social and emotional factors as well as the best academic fit. We work in a collaborative manner with parents and students to create a working portfolio consisting of a personal profile, resume, applications, essay support, interview advice,/rehearsal, campus tour tips.
A growing number of US students choose to study in the United Kingdom and Canada as well as at US universities abroad. Students interested in pursuing this option need to be aware of the high school prerequisites necessary to gain admittance as well as which standardized tests are preferred by specific schools. World Student Support will help find the best matches and design the high school course load that will best support your student’s application. In addition, World Student Support can advise on the visa requirements necessary for each country.
Students With Learning Challenges
Students with learning disabilities (LD) have additional hoops to jump through when applying to university. World Student Support ensures that students with specific learning disabilities apply to schools with a strong commitment to supporting LD students. In addition to the college application portfolio created for all its clients, World Student Support helps LD students identify the colleges and universities best suited to their individual needs, meet deadline dates for SAT/ACT for extended time on tests, as well as gather and submit all materials necessary for support at university.
"Sandy is the consummate professional, and she has a fantastic set of global resources, which is very important when your child is in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program with plans to pursue attending university out of the country. Her ability to provide insight on how to navigate the processes of university applications, personal statements, student visa's and international health insurance is due to her personal and professional experience of having lived and worked in other countries. My husband and I are very grateful for Sandy's expertise as we have successfully launched our daughter at a university in London."
"I wholeheartedly recommend Sandy Furth as a college advisor. She recently worked with my daughter to gain admission to a four-year college. She took the time to get to know my daughter and spoke to her extensively throughout the process. You always hear about the importance of finding the right school for your student, but Sandy took this to another level. She wanted my daughter to succeed not only academically, but personally. The college search is an anxious time for students and parents, but we felt well on our way when we began to work with Sandy Furth."
"Sandy guided us and my grandson systematically, sensitively and with unerring skill through evaluations and treatment for his learning issues, his aptitudes and options for high school, and ultimately, through the admissions maze to acceptance into an amazing school that I had never heard of before she suggested it. The school has proven to be a phenomenal fit where, despite more work and academic rigor, my grandson has received no grade less than a B in his first semester and was elected president of the freshman class. That sort of outcome was only a dream for us two years ago, but Sandy made it happen."
"When I found out I was going to have a year off between high school and university, I consulted Sandy about options for a gap year. We talked it over extensively and she was able to provide me with a wide variety of programs ranging from language schools in France to home stays in underdeveloped countries. After looking through the different programs we found the perfect fit for my gap year. Under Sandy's guidance, I was able to join a program that was everything I wanted and I had a truly life-changing experience."
