Post-Secondary Support Services
We believe at City Academy that it is our mandate to prepare students for university/college by teaching them the skills, knowledge and work ethic which will make them successful there. Finding a correct university/college “fit” is of paramount importance. Therefore, our student services department is focused on the university/college entrance process. Students are given information about possible post-secondary placements on a regular basis. All students are guided by our coordinator, Stephanie, through the university/college application process and the many program options available in Ontario, Canada, the United States and abroad. We believe that our students and their families should be making decisions about university/college placement based on correct data. Every student has ready access to the post-secondary placement coordinator and students use her expertise when needed. After each meeting with a student, Stephanie emails the results of the meeting to parents, thus including them in every decision.
We have been very pleased to have assisted athletes in gaining placement in US universities on scholarship. We have been able to assist them in the NCAA process, and working with them and their parents to assure that their GPA is in the required range. Supported by visits from many Ontario universities and counseled and guided by our university placement coordinator, we feel our students have been correctly placed in post-secondary institutions which meet their needs, interests and abilities.
Support Services are available to both full-time City Academy and non-City Academy students. The Ontario application process is included in the tuition fee of full-time City Academy students. A fee for this service will apply to non-City Academy students. Please visit the Additional Services page for more information.
