We received a great deal of guidance, both one-on-one and in a group format with informative presentations for university and/or college counseling. As an immigrant, I didn't really understand the process at all and was feeling quite overwhelmed as the time approached, but that concern diminished quickly as guidance stepped in and we felt very confident by the time university visits started. Our son also felt very supported, he had many conversations with guidance as he navigated the many options available to him. He quickly learned to ask whenever he had a concern and was always supported, no matter how small the concern might be. We have navigated the transition to further education easily and successfully and our son is heading to study the program of his choice at the school of his choice.
The guidance team at Blyth Etobicoke is excellent. They truly want to understand our child's areas of interest and strengths to counsel on options available for post-secondary education. Consideration is given to academic interests as well as cultural fit with the various universities as well as the impact of learning style. Blyth participates in university fairs and provides sessions to make students aware of scholarship opportunities and the process for applying. The school recently held a session with Blyth alumnae to discuss their experiences attending the first-year of university. Guidance is provided in a timely manner and the team is always available to answer questions and act as a sounding board when needed - both for future planning and when working through challenges with current courses.
