Selecting and applying to a university is an important decision. At King’s-Edgehill, we are committed to giving our students the personalized support they need. Our one on one counseling service helps to:
Minimum of one weekly meeting
Individualizes and resolves issues and concerns raised in the prep classes
Individualized application/scholarship strategy developed with student and family input
Address concerns of the student which were not raised during prep group meetings
Consistent communication with each student's academic advisor
Proofread applications, including required essay questions, etc.
Students are encouraged to procure their own university applications. Copies are then proofread and necessary corrections noted; only then are students permitted to fill in the original. Application essays (if required) are also proofread and each student is assisted in developing the theme and content for his/her application essays
Students are given deadline dates for submission of all applications to my office. (All important dates are listed in each student's KES Daily Planner)
Applications, along with fees, letters of recommendation and transcripts are sent by the School to each university in question. Fees are subsequently billed to the student's school account unless parents have made other arrangements with me or Mrs. Naugler (Student Records).
Applications to Ontario will be made online and the fees charged to the student’s account.
We support our students in securing the financial aid they require to further their education at the post-secondary level.
It’s useful to know that Nova Scotia residents apply for financial aid through the provincial government - even if they are studying elsewhere. Meanwhile, some U.S. universities require the CSS Profile form.
While many students and families prefer to complete financial aid forms on their own, we offer administrative assistance, and can act on behalf of our students, if they wish.
Testing is not only an entrance requirement for some post-secondary institutions. It’s also a valuable tool in crafting an education and career plan that plays upon your strengths.
We are pleased to offer our students various tests including Choices, Jackson Inventory, and Myers Briggs to help them uncover the courses of study and career paths that suit them best.
KES is an official test centre for SATs and PSATs, and these tests are offered in October, December, January and June of each year. (PSATs are written by Grade Eleven honours students in October).
