The transition to the High School programme features a move towards greater independence of learning. Communicating with parents is essential in helping students maintain good study habits as social and personal pressures become more significant.
The High School programme is structured as a full-year study session to provide students with a more thorough understanding of material. The non-semestered approach has resulted in preparing students well for the rigours of university programmes. All courses are taught by subject specialists, and are offered only at the academic, university-stream level. Classes are kept small so students can receive individual help from their teachers. Students can choose from a wide variety of course selections.
Mentor College stays in touch with both its alumni and leading universities to be certain our programme is preparing our students properly. 98% of our students are accepted by universities of their first choice!
