Welcome to the page for All Saints graduates. The grade 12 year is a very busy one. Planning for post-secondary choices or the world of work takes time, research and a lot of patience! You will need to take a lot of initiative and do lots of online research as best you can. Remember your Guidance Counsellor is here to help you with any questions you may have.

The ASH School Letter is a prestigious award given to students who have accumulated a substantial amount of points over the course of their high school years by being involved in sports teams, clubs, extra-curricular, etc. It is a difficult award to achieve but shows the immense contribution a student has made to the life of the school.
Applying to University
Application to an Ontario university is done through the Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC).
In order to apply to university, most programs require ENG4UR. Be sure to check the pre-requisites for any program you wish to apply for.
Deadlines are important - OUAC online applications for equal consideration will be due in mid-January (date TBA). Graduates require their confidential PIN number which will be mailed to them by OUAC or given to them by the ASH Student Services office in November.
Applying to College
Applying to college is done on-line through the Ontario College Application System (OCAS).
Grads will need their Ontario Education Number (OEN) - a 9 digit number easily found on your report card or status sheet. You will also need to have our school's mident number. This is a Ministry of Education number that identifies each school in the province of Ontario. The mident number for All Saints CHS is: 724777
Applications to OCAS for equal consideration are due February 1. It is imperative that students check their ocsbstudent.ca email account on a regular basis for new information and presentations, as well as this site.

Support from External Organizations
One way to offset the cost of post-secondary education is through scholarships and bursaries which is money that you can be awarded based on your academic excellence, community involvement and or/financial need. Most of these you will need to do some leg work and prepare an application.
Deadlines and information on different scholarships and bursaries available will trickle in throughout the year. Get started now to prepare your application. Many require the same type of information and prep work: resumes, personal statements describing your community and extra-curricular involvement, reference letters, proof of community service, etc. To find out more information about the different scholarships and bursaries available, you can check the links on this website or the bulletin board outside Student Services.
