As we know, Profile Building is about building a holistic profile that demonstrates a lot of our students’ strengths. Being over and above Academic Excellence is a key deciding factor while applying for admissions in Overseas Universities as well as Indian Universities. So, GIS emphasizes on:
Various MOUs have been signed at International Level as well as at National level to support our students in securing admissions into good institutes after their K12 education, and also to help them with patent filing, experiential learning, project-based learning as well as Internships/workshops while they are in grades 8th to 12th.
Our school received a Letter of Association with IIT Bombay Spoken Tutorials, first of its kind in the Region and so many students from 6th to 12th grades participated for these certificate programs in all major subjects.
I am happy to share that in a year, GIS was ranked #1 in Punjab and #10 in India as per Education World Career Counseling Rankings – 2021, in recognition of our Career Counseling initiatives. In the new Academic year also, we have organized a Mega Career Fair comprising of more than 45 Universities across the world. We were once again bestowed with “Career Changemakers 2022 Award” taking into consideration our Career counseling initiatives by Career Guide (a leading Career Counseling organization of the country).
These activities will go a long way towards the Beyond Academic growth of our students and GIS will continue guiding the students in holistic aspects of Career Guidance, Counseling & Coaching to support them towards making informed Career Decisions.
