One Mother’s Opinion:
Watching my own three boys respond to the world, I’m continually reminded that a real education is not just a simple transfer of information, not a competition, but a gradual and at times unfathomable process of awakening compassion, deepening understanding, and fostering the development of imagination, curiosity and will. Learning well doesn’t always mean scoring high. It also means acquiring the tools necessary to take on the most challenging work of all – becoming the person you are meant to be.
As an educator for over 25 years and a mother of 3 incredible boys ages 15, 12, 9 – I know that every parent wants the best for their child no matter where you fall on the financial spectrum.
When determining the affordability of Upper Canada College for your family, there are a number of financial considerations to make beyond tuition. UCC has a generous financial assistance program — more than $5 million is awarded annually to Canadian citizens.
My son Nathan is a Year 9 new boy at UCC. UCC is indeed the right fit school for Nathan both academically and socially. Feel free to reach out to me personally if you have questions about our experience thus far as a UCC new family.
