Peer Inspiration Seminars

The Road to the Best U.S. and U.K. Universities

Starting June 17, Olympiads School will host a series of “Peer Inspiration Seminars – The Road to the best U.S. and U.K. universities.”


This year, 25 students from Olympiads School have been admitted to top universities in the U.S. and the U.K.


We are very happy to have invited 18 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.
