WHY

FEIA

 

UNMATCHED LOCATION 

EXPERIENCE NIAGARA

Canada is home to some of the world’s top universities. 30 Canadian institutions are viewed as some of the best in North America and beyond. Located in the Niagara Region, close to Niagara Falls, a major tourism location and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Fort Erie is the ideal location for international students.  As they are able to enjoy peace and tranquillity of a small town to focus on their studies, while still being surrounded by history and culture. FEIA’s location means that students are only a short drive to major amenities and some of the country’s top universities including the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo.

WESTERN EXPERTISE

Connie Stella, Head Principal

OUTSTANDING LEADERSHIP

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.  The FEIA Leadership team, with a combined 95 years of experience, are the founders of our East Meets West educational philosophy. We are committed to providing high quality, stimulating and enriching education. Rooted in the Ontario curriculum, our approach integrates a global view for Chinese, local and international students.  Our team of teaching staff attend the Ontario College of Teachers. We are trained in the most current teaching methods and employ the best practices in education circles today. 

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM 

EXPAND YOUR EXPERIENCE

Learning at FEIA extends beyond the classroom and into all facets of student life. We offer a wide variety of after-school activities including golf, swimming lessons, music lessons including both a travelling concert band and private lessons, First Lego League, traditional Chinese painting and martial arts, and leadership development clubs. Volunteerism and being involved in the Fort Erie community is an integral part of FEIA’s values. We encourage our students to make connections with their community which strengthens their commitment to helping others and helps them see how the idea of community extends beyond the classroom, and even beyond campus. 

PARENTAL PARTNERSHIP 

CLOSE CONNECTIONS

A key component to student success is a strong partnership between home and school. Open two-way communication is the key to any successful partnership and we have a variety of avenues to keep parents updated on the goings-on at the school, their child’s academic and social progress. Our international students are living a far distance from home which we understand can be an adjustment. All of our communications centre around making both the child and their families feel at ease.

HEALTH & SAFETY

A COMMITMENT TO WELLNESS

Part of our commitment to our students and their families is a comprehensive health and safety plan that encompasses physical and mental health support, addresses bullying and drug/alcohol use and ensures a safe and supportive living and learning environment 24 hours a day.
