Please note that a promocode is included to waive the application fee. 

 

As information moves more and more into digital formats, we’ve compiled a ‘digital suitcase’ of materials and resources for your and 

your student’s reference. Please see all items either attached or hyperlinked below:

 

·       Digital Viewbooks and Video Viewbook – Canadian, International, and Francophone brochures as well as a series of short videos on a variety of topics

·       15 Reasons Admissions Presentation – 15min video that could be used in place of a MS Teams or Zoom presentation, or simply shared with interested students to view on their own time (honestly I think it’s way more engaging than a video call and does a good job overviewing the university and info relevant to a prospective student)

·       Request Information Form – for any student wishing to receive information and updates throughout the year from Mount A

 

It’s been a tough year. In the interest of generating smilesJ: If a student is ready to apply, they can use the following promocode to waive the $50.00 application fee: futuremountie21

 

Then, if any student is interested to schedule a one on one meeting with me over the course of the Fall, I am happy to do so! Share my email curtis@mta.ca or work cell (506) 961-0633.

Potential graduates, are you still trying to decide what your post-secondary future might be after high school?  Check out My Blueprint.  This program allows you to complete surveys which in turn gives possible career choices based upon the survey results.  You may then do compatibility matches pertaining to a chosen career to see if that career suits you.  It may give you ideas and knowledge about a program/career you hadn’t thought of before.  It is synced with PowerSchool, so if you’re considering a program at a specific institution it will let you know if you meet their admission requirements. The program will also show what the future prospects are in various provinces for each occupation as well as the average salary. Another function allows you to create a resume and cover letter.  

Create an account by following the steps below:

·         Visit Myblueprint.ca/anglophonenorth

·         Click ‘Sign up’

·         Select Miramichi Valley High School

·         Create Account

It will ask for your NBEN #/student number to register, so please see Ms. O’Donnell to get this information.

Once your account is created, please click into the ‘Who Am I’ tab in the left-hand column.  Next complete the 5 surveys listed.  After this, you are ready to start looking at possible career opportunities.

Ms. O’Donnell will be having two sessions in the lecture theatre to explain the advantages of this program and to give a tutorial of some of the neat features available.  It is recommended that students have signed up for My Blueprint prior to the session but not necessary.
