Services Offered to Students
What Appleby College says about their university placement record and services:
Senior Two students are enrolled in Appleby's Guidance course (GLU4X). This non-credit course focuses on supporting students with their post-secondary applications as well as preparing them for their transition to college or university. Building from the research completed in Senior One, students finalize their list of post-secondary programs and schools they will apply to, complete the application and explore scholarship opportunities. Students have individual meetings with the guidance counsellors so they can be supported as they go through the process of deciding which program and school is best suited for them and develop self-advocacy skills. In addition to the core meeting times, students are provided with application workshops, university liaison presentations, and guest lectures aimed at supporting them with their research, completing the application, and preparing for the transition to post-secondary study.
Senior One students are enrolled in Appleby's Guidance course (GLU3X). This non-credit course focuses on post-secondary exploration and research. Students are challenged to consider their motivation for pursuing post-secondary education and to identify potential programs of interest. Students are introduced to a design-thinking approach to post-secondary planning. Using this approach enables students to be more methodical and thoughtful in their selection of institutions and programs. Students research programs based on their own values, strengths and what they feel are important factors and characteristics in their ideal learning environment, to become more informed about their field of interest and the admissions process. Students critically consider what actions they must take to be competitive applicants for admission. Topics in this course include post-secondary design and research, self-reflection, marketing strategy, the application process, writing admission and scholarship essays, enrichment opportunities, and determining next steps leading into Senior Two.
