What Upper Canada College says about their university placement record and services:

  • The University Counselling Office at Upper Canada College (UCC) is committed to supporting students as they identify and develop their individual passions and strengths, and explore how these will shape their post-secondary studies and future careers. We strive to work in close partnership with boys and their parents, recognizing that this process is about much more than the mechanics of selecting a place of higher education: it is one the most important and difficult transitions in a young person’s life. As such, the primary goal is to encourage our young men to develop a useful template for making wise adult decisions, one which recognizes the value of thorough research, honest reflection, and a willingness to follow one’s own path.
