Branksome Hall graduates are welcomed by top universities in North America and abroad, most with scholarships.
In 2018, 93 per cent of our university applicants were offered entrance scholarships, and 100 per cent of our graduates were Ontario Scholars.
This success is due, in large part, to our dedicated faculty, committed learners and our IB curriculum. The IB Diploma Program is an enriched liberal arts program that is viewed as the gold standard by universities worldwide.
Branksome’s goal for each graduate is that she is accepted into a university and program of her choice, and that she succeeds and thrives in university. Guidance Counsellors in our Senior and Middle Schools work closely with each student and family in their educational planning, beginning in Grade 7 and continuing through to graduation.
More than 2,200 universities worldwide recognize IB as a valued secondary school credential. Increasingly, the best higher education institutions seek out and reward IB graduates. In the U.S. and Canada, IB Diploma holders are often awarded university-level credits, in some cases equivalent to one full year.
