The University Prep Centre and High School Homework Help
Students can access the University Prep Centre (Old Main 2551) during daytime hours as a quiet place to work and study, with Instructors and Teaching Assistants available to help. See the Winter 2020 Prep Centre schedule for hours.
The P.A.U.L. Initiative is for high school students in grades 8 to 12 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. in the University Prep Centre (Old Main 2551). Our tutors and volunteers help students in mathematics, sciences, French and English.
The P.A.U.L. Initiative is named in honour of Paul Jubinville, one of our first volunteer tutors, who passed away of cancer during the first semester of this service.
