College Counseling in Far-Off Lands: The American-Sponsored Overseas School Experience.
Rifenbary, Deborah C.
College Board Review, n178 p18-23,31 Jul 1996
Although there are similarities between college counselors' roles in stateside and American-sponsored overseas schools (A/OS) affiliated with the Department of State, several factors peculiar to the overseas environment influence the counselor's role: professional isolation; greater student cultural diversity; dissimilar host-country values and educational methods; high student family mobility; and the college preparatory nature of the schools.
