Each section of the school has a highly-trained counsellor who works closely with the mainstream teachers as well as the Learning Resource Centre specialists. The counsellors work with the students both collectively and individually. Senior students have the added benefit of working with their counsellors on Community Service Projects and Self-Awareness and Leadership training camps. The ultimate goal is to help students realise their potential and be well-integrated young people.
Our Career Guidance Counselor keeps students updated with various career opportunities. This is done by exposing our students to presentations made by our school guidance counselor and from admissions officers from Australia, United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore, and India.
Students are guided to understand their learning styles, their strengths/weaknesses and seek the best options available to them.

In order to ensure that our students are exposed to the maximum possible career options our school hosts eminent professionals from various fields (an event initiated by our Principal and our school Alumnus – Mr Vikram Uttamsingh -KPMG). These professionals interact informally with our 12th graders over a lunch meeting. This is similar to the “brown paper bag lunches” at the US universities. The same set of professionals also offer summer internships to out graduating batch of students.
