The International Canadian Academy is a bilingual education franchise based on Canadian best practices and developed in partnership with the Richmond School District, which manages approximately 50 schools in British Columbia, Canada.
Canadian students are always among the highest achievers in international testing. For decades, Canada has been the highest-ranked country of all English-speaking countries, especially for the OECD’s PISA.
The educational franchise offers a complete solution for schools looking to provide an education that empowers their students to thrive in all aspects of their lives by focusing on core competencies. The International Canadian Academy also includes the state-of-art programs from Digital Media Academy, one of the best STEAM (science, technology, education, arts, and math) course providers in Silicon Valley, U.S.A.
At the International Canadian Academy, franchisees are never alone: they’ll have full access to TeacherWit, a global learning community where educators from around the world can connect and share ideas, questions, resources, and best practices with fellow franchisees.
Franchise partners will be able to invest in their country’s education market, meeting all legal requirements, helping future generations, and establishing a thriving and lasting franchise business.
How does the International Canadian Academy franchise model work?
The International Canadian Academy education program serves students from pre-kindergarten through high school, in a bilingual setting that follows the most effective Canadian and international practices. It offers a complete program that fosters core competencies, skills, and knowledge of students as young as one and a half and until they graduate to pursue their learning in higher education.
Moreover, International Canadian Academy has a partnership with Digital Media Academy, a recognized provider of quality STEAM programs for the digital education of its students. International Canadian Academy also provides the master franchisee with relevant curriculum resources, school forms and templates, and professional learning materials to be used with their franchise owners.
The master franchisee is responsible for establishing a model for developing the International Canadian Academy program in new schools or converting existing ones within their territory. It will also provide full support to schools adopting the International Canadian Academy program, including the brand’s quality assurance to ensure its high standards are met at each school.
