College and University


Senior CTS students planning to attend university or college are provided with guidance and counselling as they explore their post-secondary options. Starting in Grade 11, students meet on a regular basis with the university placement counsellor to set goals, discuss course selection, research post-secondary options and complete applications. They are guided and assisted through every step of this process. Most students submit their applications by January of their Grade 12 year.


Students who wish to apply for admission to universities in the United States must study for and write SAT assessments. Students are advised to start preparing for their SATs in Grade 11 and complete their SATs at the beginning of Grade 12.


Students whose first language is not English must study for and write the TOEFL, IELTS or other equivalent language assessment as part of the university admission process. Students who have attended high school for more than four years where English is the language of instruction MAY be exempt from writing these assessments for SOME universities. Students should meet with the university placement counsellor to discuss this. If not exempt, students should write one of these language assessments before their university application deadline.
