Students hoping to gain admission to a Canadian university will be academically well-equipped when they graduate from one of the College's four distinct High School programs, which includes Grades 10, 11, & 12

These two-year degrees are useful as a standalone qualification and as a basis of admission to third year at university, and gives you eligibility to apply for a three-year work permit.

Students can enjoy the cost savings of taking their first and second year university-level studies in the more personal atmosphere of a smaller college before transferring to second or third year at a university.

Perfect for students who have been accepted into an academic program but whose English skills are deemed insufficient, or for students wanting an academic environment in which to learn English.
