First, thank you for your interest in Niagara Academy. For those of you who don’t know about us yet, we are more than just tennis training. We are a gem of a school in the Niagara Region. We offer a full Ministry of Ontario diploma-granting academic program for grades 6-12.
How are we different? We have small class sizes (under 10 students/class) and our qualified, experienced teachers provide a quality education. We start preparing students for post secondary from the time they are young, in elementary school. Many of our students go on to get athletic/academic scholarships in the United States. We also help students who want to attend university in Ontario. We help them all through the application process and prepare them for entrance exams. The teaching staff is incredible to work with and the students are focused and determined.
We also offer English as a Second Language and tutoring support so international students can improve their English and complete work from their home country. Each of our students has an individualized program and their own specific goals in academics and sport. We do our best to challenge them and to help them meet these. Our success rate has been impressive and I love hearing from former students.
We aren’t just an international school, we have day students too. Although we cater to many students from around the world, we also have many local students that attend our school.
We have a home stay program in which students can have the full Canadian experience or feel like they have a home away from home. I have worked in many schools over the years, and I can honestly say that this environment is not like anything I have ever seen…in a good way. The environment allows for accelerated learning, life skills and added attention. It is positive, special, inclusive, welcoming and comfortable. Students thrive here. What more could I ask for?
