Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

If you have taken a course not listed below that you believe satisfies as an equivalent course, email chooselaurier@wlu.ca. If you're applying from British Columbia, you should also review our list of accepted courses, which reflect recent changes made to the British Columbia high school curriculum.
