University and Careers Counselling
The University and Careers Counselling Department is committed to informing, enhancing, and guiding the Mulgrave community in all aspects of post-secondary planning.
The culmination of a Mulgrave education lies in the options that become available to our students as graduates. Armed with a world-class IB education and a strong sense of self, Mulgrave grads are well-prepared for post-secondary life.
As a department, we work closely with both the student and his/her parents to help them refine their university search and determine what path should be taken in order for our students to be prepared to earn a place at their university of choice. This journey begins in the Middle School (Grades 8 and 9) with guidance embedded in Life and Learning classes. As students progress into the Senior School (Grades 10-12) counselling expands to include course selection advice based on the goals that students have set for themselves. Our university counsellors meet with each student to map out a detailed schedule which reflects personalised post-secondary ambitions.
The University and Careers Counselling Department works closely with students and their families throughout their years at Mulgrave to maximise a student’s ability to reach his or her highest potential and move into post-secondary life. Thus, we are committed to providing the following services and more:
- Clear and ongoing communication with the Mulgrave community about what it takes to earn acceptance to post-secondary institution.
- Comprehensive information and resources that are easily accessible both online and in person.
- Information and testing services related to post-secondary application including access to external admissions assessments: PSAT, SAT, ACT, BMAT, TSA, etc.
- Building and enhancing close partnerships with post-secondary institutions such as attending conferences, hosting university fairs and visits, and much more.
