University Guidance 

Baishan AWS knows that being accepted into competitive universities is not easy. It takes more than good grades and high scores. Being accepted takes years of planning, wise decisions, and constant support from educators with knowledge of current trends in college Admissions departments.  

Baishan AWS students have the advantage of having one-to-one college counseling sessions with the Director, advice from AWS Tacoma counselors, and teachers with time to dedicate to each student. 


Most universities abroad require students to meet an English language proficiency. This is part of why students have scheduled classes that help support their English language learning. These classes are based on a 2-tiered system. Students take English as Additional Language (EAL) classes until they meet a certain score. Students who meet the proficiency criteria are then immediately placed into a TOEFL support class that teaches them test-taking skills. 

Baishan AWS and Annie Wright Schools, Tacoma both provide students with access to SCOIR – an online service that  organizes student data, college admission requirements, and college degrees. This system has the advantage of giving our school the ability to quickly send packets of documents directly to the universities and colleges in a timely manner, ensuring that deadlines are not missed. Students can also use this to help apply to colleges.  

 College Guidance Management System

Baishan Annie Wright Schools is pleased to offer the college guidance management system called Scoir (pronounced "score"). This new, modern online system will streamline the process of requesting, processing, sending and tracking the electronic delivery of all application-related documents. More importantly, it's much more helpful for students and parents during the college search and selection process. On Scoir, colleges come to life through pictures, videos and links that highlight active student clubs and organizations. This better enables students to identify colleges that are a good fit with their personal and academic interests, which increases college retention.   

Scoir also provides parents with useful financial calculators so you can determine the likely cost of attendance at different colleges and consider the affordability when deciding where to apply. These features, along with more convenient scheduling and communication tools, will help keep everyone informed and engaged throughout the college application process. Scoir exists to help more students achieve more positive outcomes, and we're excited that our students have access to this system and the opportunities it provides.
