The International Canadian Academy is a bilingual education franchise based on Canadian best practices and developed in partnership with the Canadian Public School System through Richmond School District, which manages approximately 50 schools in British Columbia, Canada.
Canadian students are persistently among the highest achievers in international testing. For decades, Canada has been the highest ranked country of all English speaking countries, especially for the OECD's PISA.
ICA offers a complete solution for schools looking to provide an education that empowers their students to thrive in all aspects of their lives by focusing on core competencies. ICA also includes the state-of-art programs from Digital Media Academy, one of the best STEAM course providers in Silicon Valley, USA.
At the ICA franchise you’re never alone: you’ll have full access to TeacherWit, a Global Learning Community where educators from around the world can connect and share ideas, questions, resources and best practices.
The franchisee will be able to invest in their country's education market, meeting all legal requirements, helping future generations and establishing a thriving and lasting franchise business.
From Pre-K To High School
The ICA education program serves students from pre-kindergarten through high school, in a bilingual setting that follows the most effective Canadian and International practices. We offer a complete program that fosters core competencies, skills and knowledge of students as young as 1 ½ and until they graduate to pursue their learning in higher education.
Moreover, ICA has a partnership with Digital Media Academy, a recognized provider of quality STEAM programs for the digital education of our students. ICA also provides the master franchisee with relevant curriculum resources, school forms and templates, and professional learning materials to be used with their franchisees.
The master franchisee is responsible for establishing a model for developing the ICA program in new schools or converting existing ones within their territory. It will also provide full support to schools adopting the ICA program, including our Quality Assurance to ensure our high standards are met at each school.
Do you believe that education changes the world?
ICA looks for new entrepreneurs or strongly established educational groups to implement new schools or convert existing ones.
No education experience or knowledge is required to be an ICA franchisee. We are looking for people committed to quality education, having a good knowledge of the local market and long term vision, managerial capability and financial resources.
