2015 Grads Going Places

As the 124 members of the Class of 2015 prepare to graduate this week, most are already looking ahead to where they’ll be come September.

After receiving a combined total of 552 university offers—an average of 4.5 per student—all have made their final decisions. Over three-quarters (77%) of the students graduated as Ontario Scholars.

“Typically, the majority of our graduates stay in Ontario,” says Teri Groves, Associate Head of University Counselling. This year is no exception, with 65% of SAC students opting for post-secondary studies within the province. The highest number—20%—have chosen to attend the University of Toronto, followed by Queen’s, Western, and Wilfrid Laurier.

A further 13% will attend out-of-province universities, with a significant increase in students (10) heading to the west coast for the University of Britith Columbia. There’s been a slight decrease in U.S. destinations, down to 9% from last year’s 14%. An additional 4% will are going to the U.K., 2% to international schools, and 7% deferring acceptances to take a GAP year.

Some highlights include: acceptance into Queen's QuARMs program, which is an accelerated route to medical school; acceptances to Harvard and Brown Universities; acceptance into the Stern School of Business at NYU; attainment of the prestigious Queen's Chancellor's Scholarship and the Western University National Scholarship; eight NCAA scholarships were awarded in hockey and one in football; and eight students drafted into the Ontario Hockey League.
