Welcome to the College Counseling Department at the American College of Sofia. Choosing a college or a university is an exciting and challenging process. Our goal is to help students discover a variety of summer, postsecondary, and professional opportunities. With that in mind, we begin advising students and parents beginning in the Prep year and continuing throughout the Senior year. Our hope is that students will create multiple options for themselves by applying to competitive colleges and universities around the world. In this way, students can select the school that best suits their academic, personal, financial, professional, and familial needs during the spring of their senior year.ACS students have the opportunity to apply to a variety of educational systems around the world due to our strong curriculum and varied diploma offerings. Bulgarian students who satisfy the requirements graduate with both American and Bulgarian high school diplomas. International, or non-Bulgarian students, have the chance to earn the International Baccalaureate (IB) and American diplomas. All ACS students are given the opportunity to sit for Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. These college-level tests often award advanced-standing or university credit to students who earn high scores. Top results can often make a student even more competitive in admission processes, particularly in the USA, UK, and within some European university systems. For more information on our curriculum, standardized examination results, and college/university placement, please see our School Profile.
