Laurier offers the following initiatives to help educators enhance the high school curriculum. Contact our outreach coordinator to discuss tailored academic programming for your students.
Bring your class to Laurier and enjoy a personalized campus tour for your students. Complement your tour with a program-related workshop, case study, lab tour, mock lecture, university preparation session and much more. Students will engage with current students, staff and faculty as they learn about a variety of available topics. Visit our website to see what options are available.
We offer full-day programming, activities and experiential learning opportunities for Specialist High Skills Majors on the Waterloo and Brantford campuses. Available for the following specialized programs: Business; Environment; Health and Wellness; Sports; Arts and Culture; Information and Communications Technology; and Non-Profit. Visits qualify as ‘reach ahead’ experiences, which integrate learning experiences with a student’s post-secondary pathway.
Invite one of your former students currently attending Laurier or a current Laurier student to visit your classroom and give a presentation on making the transition to university, called ‘The 10 Myths about University’. Available for grades 11 and 12 beginning the week of Feb. 19 to 22, 2019 until the end of the school year.
We want to help you support your students and parents and prepare them for the realities of making the academic transition from high school to university. In this presentation, we discuss the differences between the two learning environments and their academic expectations while offering useful strategies for success and resources to prepare for university. Invite us to your school or visit us on campus for this presentation.
Looking to enhance financial literacy objectives in your curriculum? In partnership with Laurier’s Dollars and Sense Money Management program, this session equips students with the money management knowledge and financial decision- making skills needed to be successful in everyday life. We discuss budgeting, common student expenses, money saving tips, as well as available resources and supports for students. This presentation can be added to an on-campus visit.
Laurier’s outreach coordinator welcomes the opportunity to partner with educators and to organize unique learning opportunities for high school students. Connect with our Outreach Coordinator Rachel Ruston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519.884.0710 x4367 to learn more about our academic programming and to collaborate today.
