We are very happy to have invited 8 students to share their successful experiences in applying to these top universities.


Many of these guest speakers had themselves attended past years’ university application seminars, where they were inspired by our accomplished students. We believe that our students’ personal stories will inform and energize many more future cohorts of students in our community, in the spirit of paying it forward year after year.


This year’s Peer Inspiration is also a charity event. Olympiads School will donate all proceeds to North York General Hospital.

The following are the programme details:

  • Format: Live via Zoom
  • Admission fee: $10 per session
