Private School Financing Helps Parents

Parents who want to challenge their children to fulfill their true potential are faced with a wide array of choices today. Public school eligibility in Toronto is largely determined by one’s address, but special programs like French Immersion allow students to range farther afield; there are independent schools, private schools, and with the Internet providing virtually unlimited resources, home schooling is also becoming a more popular and accepted option for parents. Today, more than ever, the choices can seem overwhelming. But if you have done the research and decided on an alternative to traditional public schooling, you might still be wondering how you are going to pay for it.


NCAA? Don’t Forget SAT!

Your teen has long had a dream. It may have started with that gymnastics or Sportsball class you put him in as a toddler; continued in elementary school and middle school as your daughter first made the cross-country team, then took it to OFSAA; now in high school, your varsity basketball star is getting written up in the local papers and dreams of playing NCAA ball in the States and then being signed by a pro franchise.

Veronica Pang, University of Toronto Schools

"Hi, my name is Veronica Pang and I’m currently attending UTS, also known as the University of Toronto Schools. Let me tell you this. I’m not part of the administration there, so I really have no concrete idea how they decide who to let in, but I do have the wealth of the actual experience on my hands, and I am here to share it with you.

Alexandre Nossovskoi, Western's BMOS program

"I am delighted to say, that even though I did not gain entry into all of the schools I had in mind, PREPSKILLS undoubtedly gave me the push in mathematics that I needed (brought those marks up into the 90s), increased my essay writing speed (English marks hit the 90s) and taught me many important skills concerning multiple choice tests (at least a 50% increase in speed and an immeasurable gain in the amount of intuitive logic one has when writing these tests.)
