FAMILIES TELL THEIR TALES OF SUCCESS

“She truly benefited from the teachers’ personalized approach.”

"After graduating from Columbia in 2012, my daughter has been extremely successful at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Business, receiving scholarships consecutively for two years. I fully understand that her success is due to not only her own efforts, but also CIC’s Total Care Education System®. She truly benefited from the teachers’ personalized approach. As a parent, CIC’s Total Care Education System® also gave me peace of mind, especially the residence staff who are extremely dedicated to their students."

“I would highly recommend CIC’s Total Care Education®.”

"I called CIC in 2002 upon the recommendation of another parent. After speaking with a representative from the Admissions Department, I knew this would be a perfect place for Scieska to attend. Her schedule was tailored specifically to her dream of becoming a journalist. CIC was essentially a “home away from home” and I was pleased with the living accommodations, security, housing rules, meals, transportation and social environment. I would highly recommend CIC’s Total Care Education® as the best option for any young person looking to make that successful transition from high school to university."

” I believe in the unique Total Care Education System®.”

"Kate is my lovely first daughter. As a mother, I care for her studying and her personal growth. I always hope for the best for her as any parents in the world would. I chose CIC to be Kate’s second home because I believe in the unique Total Care Education System® which provides a stable living and learning environment for young international students. CIC developed Kate not only academically, but also socially, emotionally, and physically. CIC gave Kate the opportunity to become a young leader and also contribute to the Hamilton community. She was accepted to 5 top universities in Canada with many scholarships. I am very proud of Kate’s success. I believe that CIC truly is the big second home for Kate and many other International students."

“CIC’s  Total Care® ensured the overall well-being of my five girls during their high school careers.”

"Columbia International College is unique, diverse and beautiful in a way that is so special and contributes to Canada’s multiculturalism. CIC Total Care® ensured the overall well-being of my five girls during their high school careers. Academically, their teachers and tutors pushed them to excel. They received unmatched guidance that allowed them to choose the right universities where they would flourish. I seldom had to worry since I could always learn how they were doing through a phone call to their liaison officer. I am a proud Columbia International College mom."
