Selwyn is a gem in the rough. The highly motivated and nurturing faculty have a huge influence on student success by encouraging each student to discover and excel in their individual strengths. The curriculum is challenging and students often work well above grade level. This is one reason Selwyn graduates have such an easy transition to college and university level work.
