principal's messageCanadian Independent College (CIC) represents excellence in preparing students for entrance into Universities and Colleges throughout the world. Post Secondary education is changing and we are adapting to ensure students can manage the demands of future post secondary courses.

As students are learning the Ontario core academic curriculum at Canadian Independent College our excellent and innovative teachers are helping students learn how to learn, think for themselves, collaborate with others, give presentations, and be a part of their Canadian community. According to James Bradshaw in his Our Time to Lead Re: Education series article in the Globe and Mail Friday October 19, 2012 , "the latest drop out rates for university show one in seven students won’t finish their studies." Canadian Independent College has a strong team that works together to facilitate each student’s growth academically, ethically, emotionally, and physically. Being mindful that we are educating the whole person helps us to ensure students are prepared and have the tools to fulfil their academic goals at Canadian Independent College and as they continue their academic journey at universities in Canada, the U.S.A. and beyond.

The environment at Canadian Independent College is peaceful. With many of our students coming from dense urban cities it is often a healing and calming experience for them, sometimes unknowingly. Being part of a smaller school community of two hundred students maximum has its advantages.

It is and continues to be a privilege to work with so many ambitious and good young students from Canada and all over the world. We look forward to meeting you at Canadian Independent College and wish each of our students success in their academic endeavour.
