CIC runs weekly meetings where a group of High Achievers can take part in specialized activities based on their interests and university goals. The point is to explore a variety of experiences and learn new skills while building foundations for success in university and future careers.
High Achievers are Grade 11 and 12 students who consistently earns top grades in their classes. A High Achiever student can be identified automatically by marks and/or by recommendation from teachers and other staff members.
Develop Skills for Success
CIC has recognized the abilities and skills of this group of students and is eager to give them extra opportunities to pursue the pathways of their dreams.
Many of our High Achievers have dreams to attend the top universities in Canada, the United States and United Kingdom – we want to use these meetings to help provide them the foundation for a competitive application.
Facilitate Stronger & Richer Resumes
Many top universities require students to complete supplementary applications – this means that in addition to high grades, they are required to submit essays and/or videos detailing their extra-curricular experiences. They are looking for in depth, rich experiences, showing commitment and leadership. The more information, the better prepared the student will be.
Here you can find some examples of the activities and opportunities for these students:
