As a parent, you’ve witnessed dynamic changes in global culture during your lifetime, and the stability and creativity that Canadian educators provide for local and international students. Cambridge International Academy is that twenty first century school, registered with the Ministry of Education and subject to inspection, catering to local and international students from grades 7 to 12.

“Our goal is to be an inclusive private school that caters to students from various cultural backgrounds who come together to enhance their school experience and to receive the greatest opportunity to learn,” says Sandra Arff, Principal, Cambridge International Academy, adding that “diversity in the classroom teaches students to be respectful of different opinions and become receptive to multiple perspectives on given issues which add value to their learning.”

Cambridge International Academy’s primary objective is to assure that your child experiences a positive and productive school environment: to self-actualize and grow academically, emotionally, and morally; find and encourage each student’s abilities and hidden talents; and, assist students to become independent thinkers able to work effectively with others and be inspired by a life-long curiosity. This is achieved through:

  • Small classes, keeping student-to-teacher ratio low to differentiate and personalize the curriculum, meeting the needs of each student to accommodate an academic, college, and/or school to work transition educational pathway;
  • Inclusive, supportive school culture, providing an atmosphere of respect where students develop an understanding and acceptance of individual differences;
  • Innovative and interactive instruction methods, consisting of co-operative learning, mastery learning, direct instruction, and inquiry learning that best suit the learning profile of students and the classroom environment; and
  • Professional and dedicated staff to help students with their educational growth and overall well-being.

Parents have noticed the difference. Sue Indrigo says “Julianna is excelling at Cambridge. When she joined, they reviewed her learning style and interests and the staff developed a plan that will set her up for success at college or university. The teachers are very supportive and we work together as a team. I’m very pleased and Julianna is getting good grades and having fun

at the same time.” Shazia Ishrat and Farrukh Siddiqi add, “We have seen various changes in Rida during this short period of time; her studying habits have improved, she is positive with her work challenges, and is very keen to work hard.”
