Theory of Knowledge

In grade 11 and 12 students will interact regularly with University Advisors during one-on-one meetings as well as in small groups in their Theory of Knowledge (TOK) classes. TOK classes include personal assessments, career exploration exercises, university research, essay-writing practice, and a review of university application procedures. University Advisors also organize visits from representatives for over seventy international postsecondary institutions, as well as coordinate visits to nearby college fairs.

Software Tools

Students will also be given access to software designed to further assist them in planning for their futures. This software serves as an excellent organizational tool which provides students with search engines and important data for college decision making.
