How much time should I expect to commit over the six-week program?
We often have students and parents that are concerned about time commitment required for our Scholarship Prep Program. Let me assure you that if you are unable to make time for this type of work in Grade 10/11, you will never get around to scholarships in Grade 12. You are only going to get busier so if not now, when? This thinking is the same thinking that causes most high school students to just never apply to scholarships.
The great news is:
The Grade 11 Program Is Online and Self-Paced:
This means that students are able to go through the material at the pace that they want and are able to do it from anywhere in the world. You can take what you need and want from the program and return to it when it's important.
Here is a breakdown of time allocation:
Weekly Course Material: you can choose to go at your own pace and will have continued access to the course material even after the course is completed.
Weekly Webinars: these are live with Madison, but are all recorded after so that a student can watch it back at their own convenience if they can't make it live.
Assignment Submission: Assignment submission is up to your discretion! You have the option to submit weekly assignments such as essay templates, resumes, cover letters etc, but it isn't required. We leave it to you as the student to decide whether you would like someone to look over your weekly progress during the six weeks.
We set it up this way because we know every student in our program is an action-taker and is able to hold themselves accountable.
