Scholarships for Home Schooled Students

Only students who have objective, third party grades, will be offered entrance scholarships.

Students who are home schooled until grade 11 and then take grade 12 courses at a Canadian high school will be considered as Canadian High School students. Credits may be gained by attending a Canadian high school or by correspondence, night school, etc.

Non-Canadian High School students may qualify for scholarship based on SAT scores. This group will not be extended special offers, such as the full tuition scholarship, but will be eligible to receive the standard value scholarships.
