Wilfrid Laurier University recognizes and appreciates your responsibility as guidance counsellors and high school educators in your role of helping students achieve their academic goals. Laurier’s Office of Recruitment and Admissions can support you as you help your students navigate the admissions process and choose a university.

At Laurier, we pride ourselves on delivering a high-quality education drawn from our commitment to inspire lives of leadership and purpose. As guidance counsellors and educators, you are key partners in advising students on Laurier’s diverse range of innovative programs, which enable students to put theory into practice through unique experiential learning opportunities.

We value this partnership and have compiled resources to assist you in providing information to students interested in Laurier. If you would like further information, feel free to request guidebooks and sign up for institutional updates tailored to guidance counsellors and educators.

High School Outreach

Laurier’s outreach coordinator is enthusiastic about collaborating with educators to organize unique learning opportunities for high school students. Invite a Laurier professor to be a guest speaker in your classroom, or arrange a personalized campus visit for your students to experience a university lecture and attend information sessions on academic integrity, career exploration, and more. If you are interested in partnering with us to deliver academic programming that enhances the high school curriculum, please contact Rachel Ruston, at, or at 519.884.0710 x4367.

Jumpstart to Higher Education

Jumpstart to Higher Education is a program for Grade 7 and 8 students that introduces them to high school, postsecondary, and career/life planning. Through a 90-minute presentation including a variety of interactive experiences, students learn about choosing high school subjects, the relationship between high school courses and postsecondary pathways, postsecondary funding, careers related to each of the four pathways and global trends that are affecting career choices.
