Our Grads Are Going Places | University Destinations for the Class of 2024

Last week, amid finishing final assignments and preparing for Module 8 exams, our Grads took some time to celebrate their plans for life beyond Lakefield. As has become a tradition at The Grove, Grade 12 students filled the Dining Hall Courtyard over the lunch hour to create posters and have photos and videos taken, highlighting their destinations for the fall. This highly anticipated rite of passage is the result of countless hours of hard work and effort put into both their coursework and school applications over this year.
The Class of 2024 is to be congratulated on receiving over 595 offers of admission from across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe! While final scholarship details are still forthcoming, our graduating class has been offered scholarships and other awards totalling over $3.2 million—a testament to their strength and academic potential.
Grads have received offers of admission from top institutions across the globe, including the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Imperial College London in England, and multiple offers from the University of California system. As in past years, however, most of our Grads have chosen to remain closer to home, with just over 75% of the graduating class opting to study within Canada. Half of this group will be studying at universities located in Ontario, with the University of Toronto, Queen’s, and McMaster being the top destinations overall. McGill University is the school of choice for 6% of the Class of 2024, while 10% are heading to the east coast and 7% are heading to the University of British Columbia on the west.
Beyond Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe remain popular destinations for our students. South of the border, students will attend Boston University (Boston, Massachusetts), the University of California San Diego (La Jolla, California), the University of Denver (Denver, Colorado), Lafayette College (Easton, Pennsylvania), the University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida), Northeastern University (Boston, Massachusetts), the Pennsylvania State University (University Park, Pennsylvania), Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana), Syracuse University (Syracuse, New York), and Texas A&M University (College Station, Texas). Our U.K.-bound students are enrolling at the University of Edinburgh, Imperial College London, and King’s College London, and we are confident that they will embrace the academic rigour and unique opportunities that lie ahead. Our graduates are also crossing the Atlantic to enroll at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Dublin, Ireland) to pursue direct-entry Medicine, the University of Amsterdam and Maastricht University (both in the Netherlands) for studies in business and economics, as well as at Danube Private University in Austria for direct-entry Dentistry. 
The combination of strengths, talents, and convictions in this year’s graduating class is also visible in their program choices. While a quarter of the graduating class will be pursuing studies in the Social Sciences and Humanities, many are headed for unique and specialized programs including direct-entry Law, Landscape Architecture, Nursing, Fine Arts, as well as college diploma programs in HVAC, Building Construction, and Paramedics. Thirty percent of the graduating class are pursuing degrees in the STEM fields (including health sciences, computer science, and engineering), 22% are entering business and commerce programs, and 6% of our students are opting to take a gap year to work, travel, and volunteer before beginning their post-secondary studies.
Our Grads will be led by their dynamic interests to make positive, significant, and lasting contributions that will enrich many areas of society. Regardless of their specific destinations and choices, we are confident they are ready to embrace this next phase of their academic careers and flourish.
We are exceptionally proud of all that the Class of 2024 has accomplished and wish them continued success in all of their future endeavours!
