Our University Guidance office works with students to find a university that suits them well—but it’s also an opportunity for students to reflect, grow and learn about who they are. Students are at the center of this process from beginning to end, and we expect them to take responsibility for meeting deadlines, researching schools, registering for tests and completing applications. We are here to support, encourage and counsel students as they navigate their many available post-secondary options.
While we spend a great deal of time working with students in Grades 11 and 12, we make our initial contact with our students in Grade 9. In addition to regularly scheduled individual meetings, we also hold group meetings related to the university search and application processes. We also host evening sessions for parents each fall and spring to cover the fundamentals of applying to Canadian, American and International schools.
A Collingwood education is designed to challenge each individual student to venture into the unknown and become a discerning, resilient and contributing citizen of the world. As a result, our students are prepared for the challenges ahead as they expand their horizons across the globe in pursuit of promising and meaningful futures.
