At PrepSkills, our primary purpose is to help your child succeed. For some students, that means preparing them for the SATs and helping them navigate the US College admissions process. Other young people take advantage of our essential skills enrichment program, PrepEssentials, to gain confidence, creativity and leadership skills. But if you are the parent of a school-aged child in the Greater Toronto Area, and you are just thinking about finding the best possible private education for your child, you might not even know where to start. That’s where we come in. We have designed the PrepConnect event just for you.
Perhaps you’ve seen a friend’s children thrive at private school, but you’re not sure about the private schools in your own neighbourhood. What makes one school better for your own child than another? Should you consider co-ed or single gender? What is the curriculum like? What about fees – is there financial assistance for families in need? When is the best time to take your child out of the public school stream and make the change? If these and many other private school questions are bouncing around in your head, it’s time to get real answers from those in the know…in a relaxed, completely pressure-free setting.
We’re talking, of course, about PrepConnect, which is the private school admissions networking event to attend in Toronto this Fall. The date has been set for September 13, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Ontario Science Centre. There is no cost to attend.
PrepConnect is the perfect way to get candid answers to all your private school questions. Instead of visiting one school at a time, comparing endless websites and brochures, you can speak directly with multiple admissions officers from Toronto’s top private schools, as well as student ambassadors and other parents whose children are in private school…all in an informal setting designed to provide you with current, accurate information so you can make an educated decision on your child’s future.
Why is PrepConnect the must-attend private school admissions event of the year?
- A panel comprised of admissions officers from Toronto’s most elite private schools will address the Top 10 questions parents have about private school – there’s no better way to get the inside scoop!
- Nearly 30 top private schools will be represented at PrepConnect, so you can investigate the schools that intrigue you in-depth, or interact with many to get an overview of what different schools offer
- Participating schools include: Branksome Hall, Bishop Strachan, Crescent, St. Clement’s, Havergal College, The Rosedale Day School, Lycée Français, UTS, Upper Canada College, De La Salle, Hawthorn, and many more
- The schools in attendance regularly accept PrepSkills students and have a unique relationship with our organization. In turn, students from these schools routinely obtain admission to the most prestigious colleges and universities in the world.
Your whole family is invited to register to attend this exciting free event to ask questions, network, talk to other parents, and learn from representatives from many leading private schools. You’ll find out how, no matter what Greater Toronto Area private school you ultimately choose, PrepSkills can help your children gain the knowledge and skills to meet their goals.
At the end of this dynamic event, the private school admissions process should be de-mystified, but more importantly, you and your child will have gained intimate understanding of the best private schools in the city – knowledge that will help you make your choice with confidence.
Space for PrepConnect is limited – the event is much-anticipated by parents and schools all year. Don’t miss out! The official program, with a list of participating schools, is now available. Secure your space now by RVSP to prepskills.com.
