What BSS says about their university placement record and services:

  • Congratulations to Stephanie Urena Rodriguez, Class of 2021, who was awarded the prestigious Loran Scholarship, Canada’s largest and most comprehensive four-year undergraduate award on the basis of character, service and the promise of leadership. This award is both a recognition of Stephanie’s academic achievement and co-curricular activities, and an investment in her future leadership potential.
  • Ashley HE '20 Astronomy, Wellesley College “One of the most important skills that BSS helped me develop was my confidence, thanks to the amazing support I received in our small classes and the plethora of engagement opportunities. Whether you are into sports, performing arts or something in between, there is something here for you and you're in the optimal environment to flourish."
  • Christine DRI '20 Life Sciences, University of Toronto I came to BSS not knowing what I wanted to study in post-secondary, but with the guidance of my science teachers, I was able to find my strengths. Through hands-on experiments that showed why a certain scientific principle is the way it is, they showed me all that science has to offer."
  • Halle Burnett '22 - New York University for Music. I'm at New York University getting a Bachelor of Music Theory Degree within their Songwriting and Contemporary Production program. I would say BSS prepared me for university by instilling good habits of thinking within learning. What I mean by this is that so many teachers encouraged me to think deeply about the work that I produced, encouraging me to truly consider the different lenses and implications of a specific topic and subject. They also offered a lot of support, so when I came to NYU, I was never afraid to talk to my teachers and take advantage of the many different learning resources NYU offers.
  • Sam Blackstein '22, Boston University, Pre-Law. My teachers encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and to take risks, which helped me to develop into a confident and curious learner. I have a passion for the social sciences, and I was able to explore them through the variety of courses I took at BSS. I am now majoring in Psychology at Boston University. I feel incredibly grateful to have been such an active participant in the BSS community and I look forward to always being connected to BSS.
  • Madelyn Jia '22, University College London (UK), Health Sciences. My counsellor provided me with information that helped me to see the bigger picture, and my teachers advised me with helpful subject-specific insights, which were especially beneficial when I was applying to UK universities.
  • Adjoda Archer '22. McMaster University, Life Sciences. BSS' amazing teachers have shown me the importance of getting extra help. In university, it is no different when it comes to seeking help during office hours. My teachers helped me grow and understand that to the point where I was comfortable going to my professors and teaching assistants with questions. The many leadership opportunities I had at BSS have allowed me to be a leader in small settings in University . In my tutorial sessions when working in small groups, even if I have no idea what's going on, I have become the type of leader that listens and learns, the way BSS taught me to be.
