University Placement

University Acceptances for 2017

Collectively, our 79 members of the Class of 2017 received more than 410 admission offers and $1.1M in scholarships and awards to 75 of the top universities across Canada, the U.S. and the world.

Class of 2017 Placement by Program Area

In yet another example of the balance that we strive for here at CDS, members of our Class of 2017 are pursuing a broad range of academic and professional disciplines. Science leads the way with 38% of our graduates pursuing Life Science, Physical Science or Engineering degrees. The Humanities and Social Sciences follow close behind with 35%, Business at 19%, Design and Visual Arts 4%, and Professional Programs representing 4% of the placements.

Grade 12 University Visits

At the beginning of each school year, the Office of Admission and University Placement takes Graduating Year (GY) students to the Ontario and Quebec universities for campus visits.

The eastern tour stops at Queen’s, McGill, Concordia, Ottawa and Carleton University, while the westbound trip toured Western, Laurier, Waterloo, Guelph and McMaster. This annual excursion is a great kickoff to a hectic year of research, applications and decisions for our Grade 12 students. Both trips expose students to campuses old and new, big and small, urban and suburban. Our students sit in lecture halls, eat in school cafeterias and generally soak in the environment of the universities and towns we visit. An added feature of the trip is the opportunity to connect with our alumni currently studying at these destination universities.
