The academic plan includes the requirements of a particular high school student chosen by the student. After the completion of the annual High School Support program, it is possible to re-enter the chosen higher educational institution. Credits based on the results of the study are taken into account in the future in college, so the student does not lose one year and can improve his knowledge.

The courses in the summer months at Fulford Academy have their own characteristics. These are not classical language courses, but an intensive program of preparation for studying in an English-language boarding school.

Fulford Academy reviews

Sergey V.

Frankly speaking, studying in Canada is the best thing that has happened to me in my life.

Fulford Academy - this is the coolest small Canadian school that accepts a great deal of international students! I heard various English from Americans, Chinese, French, Mexican. 

It's super-beautiful, super-comfortable and super-all-designed. We are a little on the outskirts of big cities, but the nature is very beautiful and the territory near the school is big. There is a field for football and tennis courts. Inside everything is still beautiful, high quality, superhistorical! Very comfortable and tidy dormitory rooms, new clean showers, and dining room is light!

Yes, sometimes it is difficult to learn (especially at first it was difficult to fully switch to English in all areas), but now you understand that here study is not just years before the diploma, but an entire adventure, a real life and it's very cool.

My daughter is studying at Fulford Academy for the second year. 

Sasha is fluent in English, although she did not show any obvious abilities for the language, she became interested in mathematics, physics. I planned to send my daughter to college in the USA after graduation, but Sasha flatly refuses, she wants to stay in Canada. Thanks teachers of the school for sensitive attitude to the child, and SMAPSE experts for the recommendation of the school, as well as accompanying the daughter in Brockville!
