Scholars is a Canadian company based in Toronto.
We opened our first location in 1999 and since then we’ve helped thousands of families achieve results through our proprietary programs and superb teachers. Our programs are built around world-class curriculum standards, so you can rest assured that what your child is working on at Scholars will transfer to the classroom.
We believe that world-class curriculum and programming coupled with qualified, caring teachers lead to success, both inside and outside the classroom.
The world is evolving more quickly than ever before. From technological advances to innovations in every industry, students need more than a few “kill and drill” worksheets and someone knowledgeable in a subject in order to succeed in today’s fast-paced world. It takes thoughtful, attentive teachers who are able to deliver stimulating lessons through comprehensive, well-designed curriculum that bolsters your child’s weaknesses while maximizing their strengths—and that’s what Scholars provides.
Our Proprietary Curriculum
Our proprietary curriculum is the cornerstone of Scholars’ programs—and why they work so well!
It has been developed, maintained, and improved over the years by certified teachers and educational experts to ensure that it follows the provincial curricula and a methodology that ensures success for every student. What makes Scholars’ curriculum unique is our approach to learning—we know that students want to experience success and continue to progress and learn new concepts, but we also know that they need repetition to reinforce and help retain concepts they’ve learned.
Specialized Learning Resources
