The program consists of four levels that focus on language learning in the context of academic subjects, such as science, social studies, literature, cultural understanding, and communications.
    Our ELDP is designed to develop our students’ academic study and participation skills that will ensure their success with the completion of their BC Graduation Diploma. We are committed to a personalized approach that provides students who are learning English with the necessary tools to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

I would like to share my experience about Alexander Academy’s response to the world pandemic crisis.

Personally, I really enjoyed our new way to attend school during this crisis. We got a lot of time to improve our skills and the opportunity to both meet our classmates through video and audio and have personal meetings with our teachers.

I highly value the time I had with the teachers. They always attended classes happily and curious about how to help us with an assignment or other questions. All our teachers have truly been there for all students, right since the beginning.

I am very grateful for having such happy and driven teachers at Alexander Academy, they care about every single individual and want the best for all of us.
