Barclay Educational Services

Helping students find rewarding and meaningful education options

Our Vision

Barclay Educational Services offers senior high school students a specialized service that helps them map out a successful educational pathway. Secondary school guidance counsellors are often burdened with numerous responsibilities. This limits the time they can offer to each student. The result is that a proper and thorough pre-college /university academic plan, complete with application support and follow-up is seldom developed.

Our Academic Planning service helps students define and focus their career goals and ambitions, research the post-secondary schools that offer specific programming, and help you with the application and provision of materials.

“Barclay Educational Services assisted our daughter with the selection of her Grade 12 curriculum, then provided hands-on consultation and guidance with the completion of her university applications. Jackie went out of her way to manoeuvre her through the selection of a university, faculty and courses…an excellent return on our investment!
