Our Students’ Achievements

s-Achievements---Sep-2014

We have remarkable students at La Citadelle with a variety of talents, not the least of which is academic excellence.  At La Citadelle, students have the opportunity to “show what they know.”

Our Graduates

At La Citadelle, we are committed to preparing students for success at the university level. Our most recent graduating classes are no exception to this commitment:

  • All students graduated with an 80% or above overall average, despite a rigorous curriculum from Grades 9-12.
  • Most students achieved a mark of 85% or above on their six best Grade 12 university preparatory courses.
  • Approximately 60% of these students achieved a mark of 90% or above for their six best Grade 12 university preparatory courses, a feat which enables them opportunities for program selection and scholarships that are unavailable to students who achieve below the 90 percentile mark.
  • All students received acceptance into their first choice university, and the majority of these students received acceptance to each university they applied to, which ranges from 3-5 universities per student.
  • Some of the university choices of our graduates include Trinity College at the University of Toronto, Victoria College at the University of Toronto, Engineering Sciences at the University of Toronto, Bader International Program (England) at Queen’ s UniversityUniversity of Western Ontario, McMaster University, York University (Screenwriting), Ryerson University (Business Studies / Hospitality and Tourism) University of Waterloo, and OCAD University.
  • Most students received early acceptance letters into university that arrived no later than March 31st.
  • Approximately 75% of our graduates received some form of monetary-based scholarship aligned with the program of their choice.
