Academic Consulting & University

Application Package

The development of global education has increased the pressure on students—from elementary school to university—to find effective, innovative ways to succeed. Therefore, now, more than ever, students must develop in character, community service, self-discipline and goal-orientation, as well as in academic skills. As they do so, they should also plan the academic choices that will lead them to their chosen careers.

Each year, Berton College helps dozens of students enter famous universities in America—including Yale, U Penn, Cornell, Chicago, NYU, Berkeley, UCLA, and Washington —or any of the top Canadian universities, including the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, McGill, Queen’s, Waterloo, Western, Alberta, Calgary, McMaster, Ottawa, Simon Fraser, and Victoria. Our extensive support throughout the application process will also help you to achieve your dreams.
