Keep reading to learn three of the reasons why GLCT is the best choice for you.
Find Home in the Most Multicultural City in the World
Toronto is recognized by the United Nations and BBC as the most diverse city in the world.
With over half of the population of Toronto born outside of Canada, and more than 200 different languages spoken, multiculturalism is celebrated in this colourful city. Located within a prestigious residential area near downtown, our private school in Toronto has welcomed students from more than 60 different countries.
We understand that the transition to a new country and school can be difficult, which is why providing a safe and caring learning environment is important to us. When students arrive, they receive an orientation and tour of the school and neighbourhood. In addition, we offer many supervised extracurricular activities, such as school clubs, recreational sports, university visits and field trips. With these experiences, our students become members of the community and build lasting friendships while truly experiencing Canadian life.
Our Private School in Toronto Takes a Personalized Approach
At GLCT, we understand that every student is on a unique learning path. For this reason, we created the “Personalized Education Program,” which every student at our school benefits from no matter which program they are enrolled in. This means that students have access to private sessions with guidance counsellors weekly throughout their education. In these sessions, we aim to meet the individualized needs of each of our students, formulating study plans that adhere to their goals and needs. We ensure our students have all the resources they need to stay focused and succeed academically. In addition, our experienced guidance counsellors assist with the entire university application process, from identifying prospective schools and programs, to assisting in gathering the necessary documents and filling out the appropriate paperwork.
