Phoenix Magnet Academy’s team includes academic counselling experts who develop strong relationships with university and college admission departments, students and parents.
Early in the PMA journey, students study a fascinating course called Career-Life Education which allows students to determine their post-secondary goals and to create unique term projects that represent their interests. Students are assigned a teacher who completes an Independent Growth Plan (IGP) with the student’s input, so that staff, parents and students can track student’s progress in academic, personal, and extracurricular goals. Parents are also invited to add feedback and goals to the IGP. Grade 11’s complete the Career-Life Connections course that prepares them for life beyond high school. They are taught how to write eye-catching cover letters for job applications. They also write personal profiles for college and university applications for such schools as University of British Columbia (UBC), Trent University, and University of Toronto (UofT).
