If you are looking for invaluable consulting experience, real challenges and career starting opportunities, Foundation has it all. 

We see it as our duty to help each of our students to holistically develop in the areas of academics, extracurriculars, and character.

  • Guiding, providing assistance to families, and advising them on a full range of educational options for the students.
  • Managing students’ portfolios for Boarding School and/or University admission applications.

Overseas living experience is essential and candidates with boarding school or university experience, and knowledge of different educational systems and curricula will be given special consideration.
