Dear Parents and Students,
As Summer 2022 turns to Fall, it is with pleasure that I welcome you to the OIA family.
OIA is now in the process of expanding our onsite campus to welcome you and your family to our Thornhill campus. With COVID restrictions dropping worldwide, more and more students are seeking to return to onsite learning. At OIA, we are currently expanding our onsite campus at 7191 Yonge Street. The community of Thornhill, Ontario, where OIA is located, is a bustling, active and embracing city of people and businesses, families and cultural events that will embrace you as well! Shops at Yonge are right across the street, with condominiums, residences, businesses and food courts steps away from the school. Do you want to immerse yourself in the culture and language of Ontario, Canada? OIA is the place for you.
Our OIA teachers and educational staff are committed to your academic success, today and for your future. Today’s student is tomorrow’s successful, responsible adult, an accomplishment secured by a strong education. At OIA, we take great stock in helping you, the student, establish the foundations, in roads and pathways to your successful academic future.
Caring and dedicated, we set high standards for you, our students, and provide the support systems and processes for student achievement of these. We focus on your learning in ways that develop it academically and prepare you practically for future accomplishments.
Our teachers are either OCT certified or have the equivalent status from another province or an international country abroad. They are specialists in their fields and have your, the students’, best interests educationally at heart. On any given day, they can be found motivating, encouraging and teaching our students to be the best they can be.
All OIA courses are developed and taught following the Ministry of Education’s Ontario curriculum expectations. OIA is inspected and approved by the Ministry of Education and we are a credit granting secondary school. We develop strong English language foundations for your better learning by emphasizing the essential communication skills required for success at the secondary school level and within post secondary education.
I encourage you to explore the options available to you academically through OIA. Our purpose is twinned to yours, your development of root deep communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills that sustain you in post-secondary ventures you undertake, and through the life you build for yourself thereafter.
On behalf of myself, our teachers and educational staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the OIA family.
