This four-session intensive (beginning Tuesday, August 24) is for rising Grade 12/CEGEP 2 students, or anyone applying to attend university in fall 2022. We will be going in-depth into the requirements of the Common Application and how to fill out some of the more challenging sections like the Activities list, Honors and Achievements, and, of course, the essay.

To prepare, create an account at, so that you can begin exploring the website a bit on your own.

We will also have time for some review of the other applications for US universities, like the Coalition application and the University of California application.

Make sure to sign-up for every session! If you miss a session you are registered for, you will still receive the recording afterward.

Students will not be on mic or camera and will participate using a chat feature. This is a free event.
