Welcome Parents

Choosing the right education is a big decision. We are committed to providing your sons and daughters with the learning, support and services they need to achieve their full potential.

President's Note

Dear Parents & Families

These are important times. Your child is facing a decision that will greatly impact his or her future: what career to pursue, and where. We hope the information here gives you an overview of the ways we are working to help you make an informed team decision.

You’ll also find practical advice from one parent to another at our newest site, Parent Central. Visit us there for ideas and suggestions to help you support your child through this journey.

At Sheridan, we are changing the way education is delivered, to meet head-on the challenges your children will face in the workforce of today, and tomorrow. To get there, we are embracing creativity — purposeful creativity — as a cornerstone to building the most relevant, rigorous and rewarding undergraduate education in Canada. Combining this with hard skills employers demand, we believe a Sheridan education gets your children more than job ready, but life ready.

Jeff Zabudsky, Ph.D.
President and CEO, Sheridan
