Parents of Graduating Students -
While some of your children may need to return to our school or move beyond Don Mills CI to pursue additional courses, the information session presented to Grade 12 students included facts about final marks, deadlines and scholarship and financial aid opportunities as they anticipate post-secondary offers. It's important to note that a 100% completion of the IPP portion of My Blueprint makes students eligible for some local scholarships and bursaries.
Please feel free to contact your child’s alpha counselor so that we can meet to discuss the best possible pathway for their successful futures.
