The Jakarta Post - Magazine - - Education Supplement - ad­mis­

Seko­lah Pelita Hara­pan is a group of five schools in Jakarta, of­fer­ing In­done­sian cit­i­zens and ex­pa­tri­ates a qual­ity, in­ter­na­tional stan­dard of ed­u­ca­tion in which English is the lan­guage of in­struc­tion. Our schools use ei­ther the IBO or Cam­bridge cur­ric­ula, which em­ploy the world’s best­prac­tice ped­a­gogy and cur­ricu­lum de­sign. SPH schools em­pha­size in­ter­na­tion­al­ism and an In­done­sian iden­tity through lan­guage and cul­tural stud­ies as a means of pre­par­ing In­done­sian cit­i­zens for their place in In­done­sian so­ci­ety and the world.

SPH’s univer­sity-ac­cep­tance rate has been proven over the years. In 2016, SPH (all cam­puses) saw 193 stu­dents grad­u­ate with an IB diploma. Al­most all of them con­tinue to pur­sue higher ed­u­ca­tion at var­i­ous uni­ver­si­ties all over the world.

Stay­ing true to our pur­pose to ed­u­cate and em­power our stu­dents, SPH pro­vides stu­dents a holis­tic ap­proach in their pur­suit of wis­dom. This helps to pro­duce well-bal­anced stu­dents sought af­ter by uni­ver­si­ties all over the world.

Ca­reer coun­sel­ing pro­grams at SPH aim to help stu­dents to be well-in­formed as they de­cide on their higher ed­u­ca­tion ca­reer and univer­sity choices. Their prepa­ra­tion starts as early as grade 9, and, guided by our coun­selors, con­tin­ues up to their grad­u­a­tion in grade 12. School ca­reer coun­selors play a sig­nif­i­cant role in help­ing stu­dents ap­ply to the best-fit uni­ver­si­ties, con­sid­er­ing their ca­pac­ity, aca­demic pro­file and call­ing in life.

How does the ca­reer-coun­sel­ing pro­gram as­sist our stu­dents, you may ask. Ac­tiv­i­ties as­so­ci­ated with ca­reer guid­ance and coun­sel­ing pro­grams typ­i­cally in­clude: Ad­vis­ing stu­dents and par­ents on high­school pro­grams and the aca­demic cur­ricu­lum, pre­par­ing them for col­lege ap­pli­ca­tion and ad­mis­sion. Plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion for score tran­scripts, col­lege ad­mis­sions tests, stu­dent res­i­dence, etc. De­vel­op­ing ca­reer port­fo­lios, which in­clude test and grades re­sults, ex­am­ples of stu­dent work and re­sumes for prospec­tive uni­ver­si­ties. Ar­rang­ing per­sonal coun­sel­ing ses­sions, work­shops, classes, fo­cus groups and spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tions that fo­cus on ma­jor skills and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment. Pro­vid­ing spe­cial­ized coun­sel­ing and in­ter­ven­tion ser­vices to pro­vide stu­dents with in­di­vid­u­al­ized at­ten­tion.

Through this pro­gram, we en­gage our stu­dents to plan for their fu­ture well. Coun­selors help stu­dents not just to send as many ap­pli­ca­tion let­ters as they can, but also to truly un­der­stand the rea­son why they want to ap­ply to a cer­tain univer­sity. Since univer­sity ap­pli­ca­tion pro­cesses are chal­leng­ing, we help our stu­dents to make their ap­pli­ca­tion eas­ier. The ca­reer­coun­sel­ing pro­gram is a unique op­por­tu­nity for our stu­dents to uti­lize as they de­cide on their once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence and en­hance their SPH ex­pe­ri­ence.
