Post-Secondary Guidance and Counselling
Mr. Taggart and Mr. Accili will provide four presentations in the fall to the grade 12's. These presentations will cover: post-secondary research and selection, post-secondary application, scholarships and financial aid, and the personal profile and similar broad-based admissions profiles. We are available to meet with students, as well as their parents, to assist with research, planning and general application guidance. Detailed information on many of these topics is available on the Post-Secondary link.
US and International University Applicants
A reminder that students interested in applying to US and international universities, which involve earlier deadlines, were expected to advise/meet with Mr. Taggart or Mr. Accili at the end of the last school year. Please reconnect with the counsellor that you began working with to resume the dialogue and process as soon as possible.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
Students are encouraged to research and apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible for. A comprehensive list of scholarships is available on the Scholarships and Financial Aid link and students should also research and apply for scholarships offered by the post-secondary institutions they will apply to. Students interested in being nominated for a scholarship must submit a letter of intent, outlining their alignment with the scholarship criteria, as well as a completed Student Biography Form to Mr. Taggart three weeks prior to the nomination deadline.
Transcripts may be requested only by completing a Transcript Request Form and submitting it to the Senior School Administrative Assistant, Ms. Deutsch. More information about transcripts is available on the Transcript link.
Requests for letters of reference also require three weeks notice and the Student Biography Form.
Students are responsible for registering for and preparing for the SATs independently on the College Board website at www.collegeboard.com . Please see Post Secondary Application - US Universities and Colleges for more information. Information about the designed SATs is available on the College Board website.
