Please Note: Due to the COVID-19 situation, a number of changes have been made to the delivery of Sinneave programs and services (click here for details), and all staff are working remotely to the extent possible. The Excel Campus Prep program has typically been offered in a group, face-to-face format and staff are currently exploring alternate program delivery options for this summer, should it be necessary, such as a series of short modules that can be watched online.

Excel Campus Prep is a five-day summer course for individuals with autism who are planning to enroll in a post-secondary program after graduating from high school.
Post-secondary programs can include degree, diploma, certificate, vocational or other training programs. This course will provide an orientation and onsite tour of several campuses in Calgary including the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University, and SAIT.
Excel Campus Prep is intended for individuals aged 16 and over who can be independent in the community for up to 30 minutes (without an aide). Participants will be expected to bring or buy their own lunch on campus at the food court. Participants will also be responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from each campus.
Topics to be covered include:
• Post-secondary readiness and program options
• Academic and career planning
• Stress and time management
• Effective communication and group work
• Navigating to and around campus
• Campus supports and accessibility services
• Recreational and club opportunities on campus
