About Kanata Academy

Welcome to Kanata Academy

Kanata Academy's small class sizes and multi-grade interaction give a family-like atmosphere, where all students are treated with fairness and compassion. This environment allows teachers to recognize how each of the Kanata Academy students is unique. Kanata Academy takes the time to get to know their strengths and to identify any areas of concern. Kanata Academy teachers can happily adapt programs for individual needs, whether it is setting realistic expectations for further growth in a subject area or enriching the curriculum to provide a more challenging schedule.
