I wish to state that such a center does exist on the island of Nevis and has been for over 12 years. The EducationUSA Advising Center as it is referred to is an established and recognized center by the US Department of State, located at the Nevis Public Library, Charlestown.
The center successfully:1) provides guidance for students and young adults in exploring tertiary education in the United States. 2) conducts S.A.T (Scholastic Aptitude Test), minimum requirement for university entrance in the United States on Mondays and Wednesdays 3) executes bi-annual international college fairs 4) Conducts orientation and pre-departure sessions 5) facilitates university visits 6) coordinates visits to parent teachers meetings etc.
As the EducationUSA Adviser, I also visited with the Librarian on St. Kitts in an effort to establish a similar space at the Public Library.
In March and October 2012, I introduced myself to the Minister of Education, St. Kitts introducing the role of the Advising Center and also held discussions with the Guidance Counseling Unit.
Further information regarding the validity of the Nevis Center can be googled at www.educationusa.state.gov and the United States Embassy on Barbados.
