Students will learn to set academic and personal goals to in order to be successful at HFI.

    We aim to help students make more informed and better educational and career choices. Activities and curriculum associated with college and career guidance and counseling typically include: 

    - Advising students and parents on overseas school programs and academic curricula, preparing them for college application and admission.
    - Helping students to plan and prepare for college admissions tests, i.e. SAT/AP and TOFEL.
    - Discussing with each student individually about their interests and strength to find out their possible college majors
    - Exposing students to important information about western countries, such as their culture, customs, weather, etc. in tutorial classes.
    - Guiding students on college research--factors to consider and ways to collect information.
    - Holding college information session. We invite graduates to share their successful experiences, as well as overseas university representatives to come to our school to give presentations. 
    - Connecting our students with companies such as HSBC for internship opportunities so that they can make use of the knowledge and skills they have learned.
