CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES and COLLEGES TOUR

October 18th - October 27th 2018


Mt. St. Agnes Academy will be offering a tour of Canadian Universities in October 2018. The tour will include Universities and Colleges in the Maritime Provinces and Ontario. The Universities and Colleges included on previous tours were:


Nova Scotia:

Dalhousie U, Acadia U, Mt.St.Vincent U, St. Mary's U, St.Francis Xavier U

New Brunswick:

Mt. Alison, St. Thomas and UNB

Prince Edward Island

UPEI, Holland College

If there is a university or college in Ontario or Quebec not listed that your son/daughter would like to visit it could be added to the tour.


** A deposit of $500 will be required by April 30th. This deposit can be made in cash or check, or payment made via direct deposit through the accounts office.


The total cost and itinerary will be provided when the numbers of students attending is finalized April 30th. The cost will be between $2500-$2900. There will be an information session for parents and students May 3rd at 5:00 pm in Science Lab. You will have the option to pay in installments.


The proposed installment schedule is as follows:

April 30th: $500

June 25th: $500

September 7th: $1000

October 6th: the remainder (I will inform you of this amount at the May information session)


Past universities tours have been a huge success. Students find it a rewarding experience. The visits helped them decide which university or college would be the best fit for them. The tour enabled students to compare campuses, programs, residences, and other services. They also gain an appreciation for the location of each of the universities/colleges and they were able to see campus living from the perspective of students attending the university. All factors play an important role when deciding on a post-secondary institution.


Should you have any questions please contact Mrs. Charlene White at cwhite@msa.bm.
