SCARBOROUGH, ON, Feb. 4, 2017 /CNW/ - Today marked the official opening of Insight Academy of Canada, an onsite and online high school offering courses from Grade 9 to 12. The opening ceremony was held at the school's physical campus in Scarborough and attended by students, teachers, staff, and community members. Scarborough-Agincourt MP Arnold Chan's Constituency Office Manager, Hilla Master, also attended to present a congratulatory scroll.
"We are opening this school so that more students can have access to teachers and courses who meet Ontario's high standards" said Jerry Yang, Principal and Co-Founder at Insight Academy of Canada. "Our Canadian school system is one of the best in the world, and students both locally and internationally deserve the opportunity to benefit from this system."
The new school offers onsite courses from the Scarborough location, including a full-time program directed at international students who are new to Canada. Student services in this program aim to create a smooth transition for young newcomers by setting up residential accommodations, assisting students while adjusting to the new culture, and providing language support as needed.
Online courses are also offered by Insight Academy of Canada as an alternative to the traditional classroom. "The way young people are earning their education is changing" said Yang, "online courses create a new option for students who would not otherwise have access to a traditional high school in Canada." Yang added that the school has started outreach to international students who want to get a head start before making the move to Canada.
For local students in and around the GTA, the school is offering a flexible way to complete high school on a course-by-course basis, as well as a non-profit Olympiad Math Program as an affordable option for extracurricular competitive math training.
Insight Academy of Canada (IAC) is an onsite/online high school that makes Ontario's education system more accessible to international and Canadian students. Students enrolled in IAC's onsite program receive full care that aims for successful transition into Canadian universities, colleges, and work placements. IAC's online program enables students to earn high school credits within a more flexible online context. Inspired by the opportunities of Canada's university system, IAC offers a diverse range of education programs taught by Ontario Certified Teachers and fully approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
