Shad Information Session!

An Opportunity next year for current Grade 9, 10 & 11 Students:
SHAD is a unique four-week summer enrichment program for high-achieving grade 10, 11, and 12 students. Participants live in residence with 50 of their like-minded peers at one of 13 leading universities across Canada. The program focuses on science, engineering, math, entrepreneurship, and the arts, but there are also outdoor recreational activities such as camping and hiking. You leave the program with new friends from around the world, increased self-confidence, a better understanding of university options, and a strong desire to overcome personal and social challenges. It’s the pre-university experience of a lifetime but the opportunities don’t end when participants leave their campus. For example, there are internships, scholarships, campus clubs, network opportunities, and venture capital funding that are only available to SHAD alumni. You can learn more about the program at www.shad.caThis would look great on your resume!
Applications are closed for this year, but please consider for next year.  A representative from SHAD will be here on Tues., Feb 7th during lunch hour to meet with interested students in the library.  There is a sign-up sheet in student services that you are asked to sign if you are interested.
