This course is aimed towards high school students preparing for excellence in college and university studies - especially in the fields of law, medicine, business, English, psychology, sociology, and history. As our school’s core bridge between secondary and university education, this university prep course is designed to impart and hone academic reading, analysis, synthesis and writing skills that prepare students to vie for A+ level, or summa cum laude, achievement. Relying upon the structure of the short essay (the précis), students acquire the crucial skills required for reading, comprehending and writing at the highest levels expected in university.
This course was designed in partnership with recent graduates from Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of Toronto School of Medicine, McGill University, and York University.
Topics we will cover
- Intro - Understanding University and Academic Culture
- The GPA - Deconstructing University Expectations and Marking
- Academic Reading - Identifying Key Points and Evidence
- Academic Writing - Structuring Complex Ideas
- Academic Debate and Analysis - Designing Sound Arguments
- Career Planning - for Law (JD), Medicine (MD), and Business (MBA)

"An educational institution unlike any other I have ever known.
The Grammaticus, in its unique combination of a very high intellectual level of study, very small class sizes, very ample feedback from the teacher, and tuition fees microscopic in comparison to those at universities, is an educational institution unlike any other I have ever known. Mr Samuel is infectiously enthusiastic and he does an outstanding job of encouraging students to think for themselves and to ask hard questions. I cannot highly enough recommend The Grammaticus. I wish I had known earlier what a precious gem it really is.”
— Alessandro Sisti, Hon. B.A. in Classical Studies, University of Toronto
"To be the best version of myself.
The guest speakers at The Grammaticus are world-class entrepreneurs and thinkers. After a summer of listening to their journeys, I decided to start my own non-profit, Angel Library, to benefit unserved youth with a love of reading - connected them to mentors and a library."
— Chris Adjei-Bediako, Schulich School of Business, York University
"I developed a strong foundation for university.
“It gave me a knowledge base for live conversations with professors. The Grammaticus taught me how to write a proper essay in a proper format, and understand what I was writing and how to break down and explain my own thoughts.”
— Nicole Soeiro, Ryerson University
"A future where anything is possible.
Not only did The Grammaticus inspire me to pursue my career in business, but they provided me with the skills and strategies necessary to navigate the university and scholarship application process. In only 8 weeks, I went from deciding not to apply to any programs, to being accepted to every major business program in Canada."
— Mahrukh Ahmed, Economics, University of Toronto
