Lakefield, ON | Grades 9 - 12 | Shortlist
The university counselling program was excellent and integrated into the civics and careers course. The guidance staff is awesome and helpful. Giving advice, listening, helping with the university process. My son got into his first choice university and program. The school takes the students on tours of many of the larger Ontario schools throughout the fall for them to help make their decisions. The staff assist the students in choosing the university that best suits their interest and needs for their plans. They have planned times each week to meet to ensure the students don’t get behind in their application process. The staff is not only knowledgeable about the Canadian school’s but also the American, Australian and European schools, giving students a wide variety of choices. The school is supportive through the process right up to when acceptances arrive.
University applications are stressful. LCS took the stress off of our plate. Our son was given all the tools and guidance required to navigate his way through the process. LCS first helped him decide where he wanted to apply and to which programs. He chose a diverse group of universities and not all the exact same program, depending on the school. All in the same field but not all the same programs. LCS did a great job of supporting our son and ensuring he was on top of all the applications. Timing is key and could have easily been missed if he was preparing it all on his own. Our son applied to 6 universities and was accepted to 5 of those universities. He had the choice to choose where he wanted to go.
