The TDSB invites families of Grade 12 students to attend an upcoming Post-Secondary Information Session on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. This session is aimed at helping parents/guardians and students better understand the post-secondary admissions process during COVID-19. This event is meant to support the post-secondary initiatives that schools are coordinating for their students locally. Grade 12 students and families will be encouraged to direct any questions about post-secondary planning to their school Guidance Counsellors.
Following a brief overview of the post-secondary application process, participants will have the opportunity to hear from a number of GTA post-secondary institutions regarding their admissions process and how their institutions are addressing teaching and learning during the pandemic. Presenters include:
- Centennial College
- Seneca College
- George Brown College
- Humber College
- University of Toronto
- Ryerson University
- York University
This Post-Secondary Information Session will take place on Wednesday, October 6th from 7 to 8:15 p.m. via Zoom. Click here to join the Information Session on Wednesday evening.

Rawlins, Coordinator – Guidance, Career Development and Student Well-Being or Lisa Edwards Centrally Assigned Principal – Academic Pathways, Athletics, Guidance, UPHS and Wellness.
