ABOUT FORT ERIE INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY
Our “East Meets West” philosophy translates into our students gaining an enhanced understanding of the interconnectedness of the world which will prepare them to be participants and leaders with an international perspective. Our crest logo incorporates four symbols: Fort, Dove, Tiger, and Pinecone, with each symbol related to an element of the school.
- The Fort takes inspiration from Fort Erie, a symbol of strength and integrity.
- The Dove is a symbol of peace, is derived from the Peace Bridge connecting the United States and Canada.
- The Tiger is the school mascot and a symbol of leadership and power.
- The Pinecone is in honour of our co-founder, 271 Education Group, symbolizing wisdom and knowledge.
Each symbol is incorporated into a shield, representing unity and strength. Red is an academic colour that conveys leadership and excellence.

At the Fort Erie International Academy, we provide an outstanding educational experience that encourages our students to truly engage with the material, embrace technology, work independently as well as collaboratively, and make inferences about the world as a whole.
