High school course selection for September 2023 is currently underway. If your child plans on applying to post secondary school note the following:

1. Early acceptance is based on grade 11 marks.
2. Entrance depends on students having the Gr.12 prerequisite courses and final marks/overall average required by post secondary school programs.

Students currently in grade 10 and/or 11 should have a clear plan and pathway towards their post secondary future. It all begins with their high school course selection. Contact me on how I can help steer you or your child in the right direction.


As post secondary students return home for the holidays after mid-terms, many are realizing that they are not in the right program. They might be considering a change in focus or type of post secondary school. If you feel like you need a change but are not sure what to do or where to begin contact me today.


When applying to post secondary schools it's important to be strategic. Apply to your "dream" school, a "target" school, and a "safety" school. Contact me to get more information and advice on post secondary applications.

With 3700 college programs and over 500 university degree programs to consider, post-secondary has many different options than when parents left high school. It's a changing world. New jobs are being created all the time, many that didn't exist 10 years ago. Give your child the space to explore a different pathway than you did. Be supportive, open your mind to alternatives, and expose your child to as many opportunities possible. Contact us today for more information on post-secondary and career pathways.

How to help your child navigate a route to career success It’s a fine line between helping your child make career choices and doing it for them. Virginia Isaac shares her top tips on guiding your child into the world of work


Last week, my daughter graduated high school as an Ontario Scholar. In the fall she will be completing a six year dual degree in Philosophy and Law at both Wilfred Laurier in Waterloo and the University of Sussex in England. For a seventeen year old, it was quite a stressful process to figure out what she wants to be when she "grows up." Post secondary options have changed so much since I went to high school and was preparing for university. Currently, grade 12 grads have 3700 college programs, while university bound students have over 500 degree programs to consider! There is a real need to provide students and parents with an in-depth, one-on-one, educational planning source. As a coach and educator over the past 25 years in the Ontario education system, I can help. If you have a child that is in grade 10-12, " that is saying, "I have no idea what to major in!" or "How do I know what I want to do for the rest of my life?" I can help support and advise on academic options and pathways with a system that targets your child's very own strengths. DM me for more information.
