A Message from the Principal

Soutrhern Ontario College

Having taught at McMaster University, I am aware of the skills and strategies students need to succeed in post secondary learning. Southern Ontario Collegiate provides students with these resources as well as the tools they need to succeed at life and make our world a better place.

 Since 1980, my superlative staff has been providing academic excellence in a safe environment. Indeed, students are cared for at Southern Ontario Collegiate both academically and socially.

Over 95% of our graduates attain admission in the best and most prestigious universities in Canada and abroad; many of them with scholarships. It is my privilege to be a part of their journey and an honour to represent Southern Ontario Collegiate: an institution of pre-university excellence.

Student Services

  • Airport Pickup and Arrival Assurances

    Students will be picked up at the airport and will be given calling cards to let you know they have arrived safely; they will then be transported to their homestay / residence destination. In their first week at SOC, students will participate in various information sessions (community activities, Canadian law, public transportation, school code of conduct, homestay/residence rules).
     

    Booking or Confirmation of Airline

    Our administrative staff helps the students with everything that they need: visiting their hometowns on holidays or renewing passports, study permits or re-entry visas.
  • University Tours and Seminars

    Specialized university presentations on campus allow students the opportunity for personal interviews with key university representatives. University tours are also available.

    On-Campus Tutors

    SOC is proud to provide full time on-campus tutors. We understand that international learners often need additional help with curriculum issues and language acquisition.
  • Exceptional Homestay Arrangements

    SOC provides students with exceptional living arrangements with local Canadian families who have been pre-inspected, screened and interviewed. The accommodations include bed, desk, chair and closet. Students find these accommodations to be a perfect environment to study comfortably and effectively. Internet source is provided by the homestay family with unlimited service up to 11:00 pm (exceptions for assignments). In most cases, homestay families host 2 students (exceptions are possible).

    Living in Residence

    At the residence, between 5 to 8 students of the same gender are placed in homes dedicated exclusively to students. There, they receive supervision, meals, cleaning service, privately appointed rooms, and common areas for meals and TV.
  • Health Insurance

    SOC provides health insurance for international students. In addition, staff is also available for transportation to medical facilities (doctors, hospitals, clinics) should the need arise.

    Custodianship

    Students under the age 18 require a custodian/guardian. SOC provides this service and facilitates the process.
