What Sacred Heart says about their university placement record and services:

  • Virtually all of our graduates go on to a university education because we develop their game plan early. In addition to individual counselling and guidance, students also learn from recent graduates about how to start preparing for their post-secondary years. In Grade 11, students can write PSAT exams to experience lengthy multiple choice formats and to obtain a benchmark. Once in Grade 12, students have weekly compulsory University Preparation that gives them the tools they need: career planning, the university application process, scholarship applications, and resumé writing. Along their Senior School journey, students are supported as they develop their strengths and a well-rounded background including volunteerism and leadership, and are encouraged to apply for scholarships, bursaries, and awards. Overall, students leave Sacred Heart fully equipped to engage in a successful and fulfilling post-secondary academic experience so they can be agents of change in our world.
