Our Seminars

US Colleges Seminar

Cost: Free

Anyone interested in attending a US college should attend this seminar. We will provide a complete overview of the entire application process, revealing the inside knowledge of what it takes to get into some of the best schools. The seminar will also cover athletic recruiting into US colleges for students in Canada. This seminar is for both students and parents.

The application procedure for US colleges is often overwhelming, especially for Canadians unfamiliar with the process. Most Canadian universities have a simplified application with the admissions decision almost solely based on grade 12 averages. In comparison, top US colleges like the Ivy League schools take a holistic approach to evaluating students, taking into consideration the students' grades, SAT scores, extra-curricular activities and college essays. In this seminar, we will reveal the details that make or break an application.

The "US College Admissions" Seminar will cover the following topics:

  • College admissions timeline
  • How to choose a school
  • Admissions strategies
  • Break-down of the application
  • Personal essays
  • SAT I/SAT II subject tests
  • The interview
  • Financial aid
  • Athletic recruiting


Private Schools Seminar

Cost: Free

Anyone interested in attending a Private School in Canada should attend this seminar. We will provide a complete overview of private schools in Toronto and Vancouver (depending on location), and provide parents with a roadmap on how to select a school that is right for their child.

Parents are often overwhelmed with the myriad of choices available to them for their child's education. We help parents navigate the process, including covering all aspects of the admissions process from school selection to the application. In this seminar, we will also cover what it takes to get into some of the best schools in Canada.

The "Private Schools" Seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Different types of Private Schools
  • How to choose a private school
  • IB vs AP Programs
  • Break-down of the application
  • SSAT Entrance Test
  • UTS Entrance
  • Interview and Personal Statement
  • Financial aid
  • Athletics


Athletic Recruiting

Cost: Free

High school athletes often assume that, if they are talented enough, colleges will find them and offer them a scholarship. As a result, they often wait passively for schools to approach them. The truth is, though, that many colleges lack the resources to thoroughly scout athletic talent, especially in the case of US colleges looking for Canadian athletes. This passive approach can hurt one's chance of getting into an ideal program.

Ivy Global's seminar helps young athletes and their parents to successfully handle the recruitment process by treating it as they would a job search. We teach students how to select the schools which are best for them and to proactively market themselves. Attending an Ivy Global seminar is a vital first step in finding success as a student athlete.

The seminar will cover:

1) An overview of NCAA rules
2) How to be pro-active in the recruiting process
3) How to target the right schools
4) How to market yourself
5) How to evaluate programs of interest
6) Athletic scholarships and financial aid
7) How to plan your academics and ultimately, your career



SAT Workshop

Cost: $300+HST

The SAT Prep Workshop is geared towards students who do not have the time to take a full-length SAT class or who have an upcoming SAT exam they would like to get ready for. The workshop provides an introduction to the SAT, general tips and strategies, and will cover all 3 parts of SATs (critical reading, writing and math).

As part of the workshop, the students will take a mini-SAT diagnostic test and will be issued a score report at the end of the session. The instructor will also provide a study roadmap for students in how to further study for the SATs on their own. The Barron's SAT book, College Board SAT book and the Ivy Global manual will be given to each student and are included in the cost of the workshop.



Recruiting Workshop

Cost: $300+HST

Our Athletic Recruitment Workshop is a half day workshop designed for the student-athlete who would like to continue playing at the collegiate level in the US or Canada. Less than 2% of high school athletes get recruited simply by playing their sport. The remaining 98% must take a more proactive approach to achieve their athletic and academic goals.

The workshop is run by Phil David, a former AAA, Junior A and Pro hockey coach and founder of Student Athlete Planning Services. Through his M.A.P. workbook (My Action Plan), he will navigate students step-by-step through the athletic recruiting process and give extensive lessons in:

  • Athletic Planning
  • Academic Planning
  • Financial Planning (Scholarships and Aid)
  • School and Team Search
  • Building an Athletic Resume
  • How to Market Yourself
  • Taking the SATs
  • Navigating NCAA Rules


At the end of the workshop, students will gain a very specific action plan for targeting their best-fit schools and teams to ensure they don't miss a step along the way. The M.A.P. workbook is included in the cost of the workshop.
