Located in Canada’s high-tech capital city of Markham, Ontario, J. Addison School is honoured to announce the Vince Carter Scholarship & Mentorship Program, in partnership with Paris Media Group and the NBA Legend himself, Vince Carter.

Former Toronto Raptor and NBA legend Vince Carter first called Toronto his home in 1998. He quickly rose to stardom and became an inspiration to many Canadians. “The Carter Effect,” as some call it, has left a lasting impact on Canadians to this day. The scholarship program was launched in Toronto as a tribute to where VC began his illustrious career. The groundwork and foundation are being laid for the program to be replicated in the additional 7 U.S. cities VC called home throughout his career.

The $25,000 scholarship provides access to high-quality education to any student with a dream to attain an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, which will significantly facilitate their post-secondary and career goals. These scholarships are available to all high school students worldwide between the ages of 16-18 who will be entering grades 11 and 12 in September 2021 and each year forward! This is an exciting opportunity, and students who have a passion for sports, music, film, fashion, broadcasting, media, science, technology, engineering and math are encouraged to apply.

Since our inception in 2002, J. Addison School has taken pride in empowering students to become independent, confident, and compassionate thinkers of tomorrow. Our campus is about 30 minutes north of Downtown Toronto and has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s premier private boarding schools with modern classrooms, spacious dormitories and state-of-the-art facilities. We complement the Ministry of Ontario Curriculum with our “Focus For Success™” adaptive program, where students receive personalized academic support and are provided opportunities to learn and explore new ideas according to individualized interests and potential. We also encourage students to develop their self-identity, where they can unravel and understand local and global social justice issues. With the aim of having students dive into world issues, being mindful that we live in a constantly changing society reinforces the need to be open to continuous learning and adaptation. Our teachers engage students by incorporating social justice initiatives into extra-curricular clubs and everyday classroom lessons.

Proudly boasting a 100% post-secondary success rate, we continuously endeavour to provide an inclusive learning environment that fosters intelligence, creativity, integrity, innovation and leadership, and effectively supports the development of globally responsible and respectful young adults.
