- Canadian Bridge Academy, Lagos
Canadian Bridge Academy is a pre-university foundation school established in 2016. Precisely, the school offers Grade 12 Canadian Curriculum, the pre-university foundation class for secondary school graduates to obtain the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) right here in Nigeria.
They prepare students for university independent research work, therefore, in their classrooms, students will find a very tasking university preparatory curriculum, grooming students to meet the 21st-century demands and challenges.
Canadian Bridge Academy achieves this in a learning environment that promotes excellence and empowers each child to discover and maximize their full potentials.
Our academic year is made up of two semesters which run from August to May. Upon graduation, the student earns OSSD, an entry requirement for admission into any University in Canada and some other countries such as the US, the UK, and Australia.
We achieve all of these in collaboration with Bronston Canadian Academy, an inspected private high school located in Welland, Ontario Canada. The school is authorized by the Ministry of Education of Ontario to offer credit courses towards the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
Once a student registers with Canadian Bridge Academy, that student is automatically registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education and would be issued an Ontario education number (O.E.N).
The school is located at 27 Adetoro Adelaja Street, End of Emmanuel Keshi Road, Magodo Shangisha.
- Meadowlands Canadian Schools
Meadowlands Canadian School is part of Meadowlands Educational Consult, a Canadian company with offices both in Canada and Nigeria.
About a decade ago, the school realized they were answering a lot of questions from Nigerian families about schools in Canada and getting into the right programs and province. This later led to the birthing of the Meadowlands Educational Consult.
The school has always had a passion to ensure that these students identify the best high schools and universities and at the same time choosing the right courses and programs suited to them.
Beyond assisting them to find the right schools in the right provinces, the school has also worked hard at helping students settle down in a new Canadian culture and environment.
It has always been the school’s desire to see how children could save for university by completing high school in Nigeria for those who might be really stretched by the financial implication of combining both high school and university physically in Canada or those who just prefer to still have their children groomed locally in Nigeria before releasing them to a foreign world.
This desire has led to the birthing of Meadowlands Canadian School which provides the same high school opportunities as someone who is physically in Ontario. What a joy to be able to obtain your OSSD within the shores of Nigeria.
The school is located at 13 David Mark Street, (Adjacent to Ibeto Hotel), Durumi, Abuja.
- ST. Benedict Immaculate Canadian Academy.
St. Benedict Immaculate Canadian Academy was established in the year 2008 in response to the growing need for quality/functional education, excellent attitude, right values, and skills expected of future global leaders.
The school started with an initial intake of fewer than twenty students but today in multiples of hundreds. In spite of this, the school is structured into small class sizes that make for effective teaching and learning.
St Benedict is a Christian school located in a conducive atmosphere in the quiet Rukpokwu community along the International Airport road Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.
The school is structured into three major sections: Pre-School, Primary, secondary, and secondary sections.
