Academic Support

Our inclusive approach honours diversity and the rich demographic mix of our school communities.

The Access Initiative is designed to recruit, admit and support individuals who will make excellent teachers and reflect the diversity of our society. Our admissions policies are designed to assess the potential of all candidates, in particular those who have faced systemic barriers in educational settings and in their lives. Access invites students from the following underrepresented groups to apply as part of this initiative:

  • Aboriginal (First Nations, M├ętis, Inuit, Status, Non-Status, Aboriginal Ancestry)
  • Persons with Disabilities
  • Racialized Persons (A racialized group is a group of people who may experience social inequities on the basis of their perceived common racial background, colour and/or ethnicity, faith and who may be subjected to differential treatment in society and its institutions. Examples may include: people of African descent, people of Asian descent)
  • Other Minoritized Persons (Please specify other identity categories that apply to you and have affected your educational experience. For example: people living in poverty; sexual orientation; English Language Learners; refugees or those impacted by the refugee experience)

Supports are also provided to students through York University, through personal services, career services etc.
