University Preparation

Supporting students as they plan for the future is an important task that requires expertise. BSS Counsellors regularly visit college and university campuses in Ontario, the rest of Canada, the US, the UK and other international destinations to connect with admissions officers, learn about new programs, and keep up-to-date with admission requirements. Our counsellors work with students to plan for life after BSS in individual appointments, Grade 10 Careers class, Grade 11 Guidance sessions, and Grade 12 Guidance classes.
Using a strengths-based approach, counsellors help students develop strong self-awareness; learn how to use their voice; independently problem-solve; and build self-efficacy. This two-pronged counselling approach - having expert knowledge of post-secondary pathways and facilitating students' maturity - ensures that our students are not merely successful, but thrive at university.
