International Students

Our Home Is Your Home

Over the past 10 years, The Study Academy has become one of Canada’s finest schools offering places to international students. We have welcomed students from China, Israel, various African nations, France, and countries within South America, and all of our students have flourished under our faculty. In addition to being immersed in an English-speaking community, all of our students have earned their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and have gone on to succeed in their chosen post-secondary programs.

“International students benefit from cultural, linguistic, and academic immersion in our school, studying with local Toronto students and working towards their OSSD and university admissions.”

Jason Krell, MSc, MBA, Principal
