Grade 11 Students

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Prepare now for success
Work with Janet in grade 11 and prepare for scholarships the SMART way!  

Grade 11 Scholarship Strategy Session


Grade 11 is a critical year to build a solid foundation for winning scholarships in grade 12.  Grade 11 marks and activities are considered in most scholarship applications, by both universities and by external funders. 


The best way to ensure you are setting a solid foundation for admission and scholarships in grade 11 is to take a thoughtful and strategic approach to where you focus your attention and how you spend your time. 


In this 75 minute personalized strategy session, we’ll cover the best strategies for you to prepare for success with scholarships.   


Here are some topics we’ll discuss:


  • The kinds of activities are the best for scholarships (and competitive admission).

  • Some scholarships you might consider applying for in grade 12 and what you should be doing now to  prepare for them. We'll look at copies of actual applications and discuss how your current activities line up and where you might need to strengthen.

  • How your grade 11 marks can affect admission and scholarships.


I know you’re busy, so we’ll uncover your best strategy to gain the kind of experience you need in the least amount of time.


Before the meeting, I will review your marks and activities and use my years of expertise to develop some ideas to help you improve your record.  Together, we’ll make a plan for you to build the solid foundation you'll need for competitive admission and scholarships in grade 12. 


Grade 12 is your best opportunity in your lifetime to win scholarships.  You will leave this meeting with the information and clarity you need to make the most of grade 11 so you can capitalize on this golden window of opportunity in grade12.

Note: these strategy sessions are for Canadian grade 11 students who will be applying to Canadian universities, and their parent(s)/supporters.

Here's what a parent had to say:

"If my daughter hasn't provided her feedback on the session, it's because she's currently out volunteering, thanks to your prompt about the importance of community involvement!  That along with the information and steps to taking initiative/ a leadership role were her two greatest take-aways. From a parental perspective, we're most pleased with the fact that she now has a clear line of sight on scholarships. Thanks a million, Janet!" 

- Parent of grade 11 student

I've helped my student clients win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships. I know grade 11 has a HUGE impact on scholarship success in grade 12.  Students who learn this information will have a significant advantage over others because they will have taken a strategic approach to their preparation.  This is the "Get it done!" session that could save you thousands of dollars!

Grade 10 is not too early to take this proactive step.  The sooner the better, as there will be more time to implement the strategies.
