Getting the best postsecondary opportunities


Its not enough to just present the information to our students about their postsecondary options.  Rather its is more about learning about their unique circumstances and tailoring a postsecondary plan that best fits the individual student.  With this in mind, there are six key fundamentals that we undertake with all our students.  They are paramount in our students finding success in postsecondary life and beyond.



their English proficiency


their academic learning


their personality, interests, & strengths


programs, universities, & career paths


between students, parents, teachers, & counsellors


the university admissions process into manageable steps


Our curriculum includes required courses that specifically address goal setting, self-assessment, and character building in addition to charting academic progress, navigating through postsecondary admissions requirements, and exploring postsecondary / career paths.  The goal is to encourage our students not only to have a strong academic record, but become people who are versatile in areas beyond the classroom.
