Virtual Student Expo!

Our team at Career Year Academy wants to help current high school graduation class!


We have taken the initiative to create a Virtual Student Expo!

From June 5 to 7, we are expecting universities, cegeps, colleges and professional training centers from across Canada! They will be able to communicate their programs, their offers and help your students make an informed decision for their future.

And the best part… it's completely free for them to register and attend!

We are asking for your help in promoting and sharing this information with your parents and affected students so that they can register (here is the link):

For students who have already completed their application or received their acceptance letter, this is a great opportunity for them to meet their future school of choice and ask questions. Whether it's about scholarships, enrollment or information on student loans, here is their chance to connect with someone in person. It might even help solidify a final decision for those considering multiple offers.


NLCU Annual Scholarship Program

The annual Outstanding School and Community Involvement Scholarship is available for students attending accredited post-secondary universities, and the annual Owen Grimes Memorial Excellence Scholarship is available to students attending accredited post-secondary colleges. Information on both is available on our website. Both scholarships are open to NLCU members, or their children and are valued at $3,000. 


Students must have a letter of recommendation from the school's principal, proof of enrollment (an enrollment verification form) from the accredited post-secondary institution/college, and official Department of Education transcript on or before September 15, 2020.
