“When no one else would take me”
I was denied an offer of admission by multiple CEGEP’s in the Montreal area (due to a poor R-score from a previous institution) before I discovered TAV College. TAV offered me admission, when no other college would have, which gave me the opportunity to advance in my academics and demonstrate my abilities as a college student. Throughout my academic career in the ALC program at TAV, the institution fostered an extremely solid foundation within this discipline that allowed me to gain invaluable skills. In turn, this foundation propelled me into my university studies.
TAV is unique because the teachers know their students individually, as opposed to other Montreal colleges, where the classroom setting is treated more as that of a university. This strong relationship between student and teacher allows the classroom to be a place for not only academic growth, but also, a space where you feel safe and welcomed, which facilitates critical thought and open discussion.
Finally, TAV is unique because of its ethnically diverse student body, which gives all students the opportunity to be interactively immersed in a setting of multiculturalism.
Despite my accidental discovery of TAV College, I will forever be indebted to the institution for granting me the opportunities to be a successful, educated and culturally open-minded member of Montreal’s society.
