University and Career Guidance

At St. Nicholas, the University and Career Guidance program and its robust Years 9-12 curriculum equips learners with the resources and tools to successfully transition from Secondary School to Higher Education. Following our mission statement, our goal is to guide learners in discovering who they are through their passions for learning, as well as to continue on their unique learning adventure after St. Nicholas by choosing and applying to universities that best fit them.

This process involves developing their self-awareness, ability to reflect, and independent-thinking. Learners will ask themselves, “Who am I?”, “Who do I want to be?” and “How will I make a difference in this world?”. With graduates studying in more than a dozen countries around the globe, we are proud to say our learners are risk-taking, open-minded individuals who become the authors of their own stories.

How about learning a little more about how we conduct this process? We invite you to watch the webinars below:
