Last year 82% of our graduating class received acceptance to their first choice of university. Brentwood's University Counselling team has established an international reputation by developing strong relationships with post-secondary admissions departments, parents, students and Brentwood graduates. Our expertise allows us to provide premium service and support to our students in all stages of their planning for post-secondary studies. Whether they look to options in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, or wherever there are English-speaking programs, students have all the resources they will ever need all in one place in our University Counselling office.

Our Process

The university/college counselling process becomes formalized at the end of Grade 10 when guidance begins on course selection for Grade 11. In Grades 11 and 12, advisors work in tandem with our counselling team to ensure that students understand the myriad options available to them. Parents are involved throughout this process and are encouraged to participate in the development of the list of potential universities.

University Tours

Posters in the hall outside of the counselling offices

Every year a group of Grade 12 students tour fifteen universities in Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces to get a first-hand impression of the different institutions in these regions. At nearly every campus students are welcomed by Brentwood alumni who give their valuable personal perspectives. Regardless which university a student may choose, the ability to contrast and compare so many choices makes the tour an incredible opportunity.
