University Preparation

Class of 2019

Our mission: "to challenge and support our students to do their best through truth and courage in learning and in life" really does lie at the very heart of everything we do. This is especially true when it comes to helping our students prepare for their post-secondary lives. Our academic advisors begin working with students in Grade 9 to help students determine appropriate choices for university and college based on interests, courses, school records, location and costs.

Recognizing that post-secondary planning is a collective process involving the school, the individual student and his/her family, our advisors strive to keep all parties informed about opportunities and application deadlines as they arise. Throughout the year, they schedule visits from university representatives from around the world to meet with Senior School students to answers questions or provide information about specific programs.
