A holistic, student & family centered approach
Traditional counseling subjects (with a twist) form the core of the Wigsbury platform. Our unique format communicates in a way that is certain to be heard.
Students do not live in isolation. Part of the challenge for students and parents alike is to like the academic decisions (in an IB world that is not so familiar) to college acceptance and success. Our DP modules help families understand.
Emotional & social wellbeing modules
All too often schools neglect to take the really important issues seriously… Wigsbury understands that in the end, transitioning to university is really an emotional activity and we take that seriously.
Parent specific modules
We help parents making informed decisions about when they need to be proactive and when to step away. Our modules address issues that matter most to parents.
Finance & practical modules
The practical stuff matters… a lot. Choices are controlled by nationality, financial background, nationality etc. These issues form some of the most popular modules in Wigsbury.
Special focus areas
Every month we take big issues and explore them site-wide. Be it ‘Dealing with Procrastination’ or ‘Staying focused’, we address issues that matter to the young people at your school.
all of this, and…
Wigsbury interviews experts to help parents and students easily understand the detail.
