THIS WEEK AT CONCORDIA

20 April 2018

University Admissions Process

Concordia International School Hanoi enjoys an excellent reputation with top U.S. and global universities. At Concordia, we work with each individual student to assist him or her during the university admissions process helping each find the best fit. Our college counseling office advises students, on when to take exams and what exams are needed, financial considerations/scholarship applications, writing essays, developing activities lists and exploring career options.

We are early in the application process for the U.S., where most of our students are planning to attend university.  Most of our students chose to apply “Regular Decision” meaning they submitted their applications on January 1st and, we are now waiting to hear the decisions. For most universities, acceptance decisions will come between March 15th and April 15th. A few students chose to apply “Early Action” meaning they can apply early and get a response from the university early, but have until the May 1 deadline to consider with their families which university will be their final choice. Many students chose not to apply “Early Decision” (ED) meaning that they apply early, and hear back early, However if they apply ED and are accepted, they must attend that university. This option is good for students that have one dream school.

We will keep you informed of the universities to which our graduates have been accepted as we begin to hear back from the majority of schools.

Concordia Academics- Test Scores

Concordia prides ourselves on elite academics.  The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and the SAT and PSAT results, are strong indicators which chart our academic success.

The MAP test is taken by most international schools in the world, as well as some Vietnamese schools.  As the name indicates, it is used to measure a school’s overall academic progress.

As these comparative tables show, Concordia consistently tests far above the Hanoi average in the MAP.

MAP results also help us identify specific areas, class by class and student by student, where we are excelling and areas in which we can improve, making it an excellent curriculum tool for shaping Concordia’s overall learning strategies.

Concordia students who have taken the SAT exam have scored exceptionally well compared to global averages.

Community Focus- Mr. Khoan

Ever wonder how Concordia’s landscaping stays so clean and green? Well, it is thanks to the hard work and dedication of Head Landscaper, Mr. Khoan.

A lifelong native of Tho Da commune, directly behind the campus, Mr. Khoan worked for Van Tri Golf Course for 11 years before joining Concordia two years ago.

“I feel a sense of duty to keeping Concordia looking nice, as I feel it’s an extension of my home town,” said Khoan, who even keeps a picture of Concordia on his wall at home. Take a moment to appreciate his work the next time you’re on campus.

"I feel a sense of duty to keeping Concordia looking nice, as I feel it’s an extension of my home town."  -Mr. Khoan, Head Landscaper

Thomas Banner: A Kick for Concordia Soccer

 Concordia Soccer Coach Thomas Banner had Concordia kicking above weight last season and with landmark wins over some of our key competitors, he’s excited for the coming season and eager to get the team back on the pitch. "I share a similar ethic with the school: that education is the important thing, and results will come from having the right educational ethic and happy, confident students” he shares.

Coach Banner himself has an impressive resume on and off the pitch. He attended Wycombe Wanderers Academy in Wales from age 8-15. At 16, Banner joined the adult reserves at a semi-pro team, Farmborough Town (now FC), two steps away from the professional leagues in Conference South. Banner then attended the University of South Hampton, where he played on the first team - and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. After finishing university, Banner played in London for Camberly Town, before turning his sights to coaching. Now 27, his passion for the game today is in coaching youth soccer, and he has found coaching at Concordia very rewarding.

“I like the faith the administration put in me as an outsourced specialist. They trust me to get on with the job and do to the best of my abilities. I like how the children at Concordia are attentive, polite, well-mannered and come to training to learn, enjoy and enrich their knowledge of the game.”
