Strive for Excellence
Kingwest Academy is an elite university and college-prep K-12 school, which focuses on character and educational skills that students need to succeed and excel at the next level and life. At Kingwest Academy, we prepare our students for their secondary and post-secondary academic life.
Our teaching methods incorporate the Ontario curriculum with engaging teaching content and highly trained Ontario certified teachers. Our goal is to successfully educate students of all levels and learning styles, anywhere in the world.
Kingwest Academy has a rolling admission, which means that we accept new students at any point throughout the year. While most students adhere to the traditional Ontario Ministry calendar, especially during the current Covid-19 educational disruption, many students attend Kingwest Academy to earn high-school credit course either not offered at their local school or an upgrade/repeat course to improve their academic achievement to upgrade their marks for university or college admission, scholarship applications, or international academic requirements. As a result, our student body includes international students who are seeking admission at Canadian universities and colleges, as well as, students who are getting prepared to attend university in the United States and Europe. Presently, all our courses are fully online until further notice, as per Ontario Ministry of Education Covid-19 decision in response to rapid increase of Covid-19 cases, the increasing risks posed to the public by variants, and the spike in hospital admissions.
Kingwest Academy holds a strong commitment to reaching every student and providing the most appropriate teaching methods in an effort to help realize the academic potential and career aspirations.
